1 Easy Way to Stay with Blue for Medicare

1 Easy Way to Stay with Blue for Medicare

It’s a major milestone you’ve been moving toward for a long time—all your working life, in fact. Now you’re on the cusp of 65. That means the hard-earned benefits you’ve worked for your whole life are close at hand -- benefits like Medicare health insurance.  

But change, even a welcome one, can be stressful. You’ll need to be proactive with your change to Medicare and consider all your Medicare choices. There are many offered by private health companies to consider—Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans (Medigap), Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Part D (for prescriptions).

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma is here to help. We’re dedicated to making your transition to Medicare as seamless as possible. We make it easy to Stay with BlueSM.

We understand changing from your current coverage to Medicare can get confusing. It’s hard to know where to go for information. Finding answers on your own is time consuming and can be overwhelming.

Some questions you may have:

  • If I have a pre-existing condition, can I keep my same care team?
  • Will my doctors be in the network of a Medicare plan?
  • Do I have to change health insurance companies?

Getting answers and making a smooth transition is what our Stay with Blue program is all about.
