Blue Cross Blue Shield Of Georgia News Release
I have had several Medicare clients contact me in the last 24 hours asking me if the latest news from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia affects their Medicare coverage.
If you do not know what I am talking about then you are probably not one of those worried individuals. But the good news for Medicare beneficiaries is that the answer is a definitive ‘NO, your coverage is not affected.’
I am talking about the recent news release from BCBSGA regarding their discontinuation of services for their individual, under 65 years of age, plans in many counties in Georgia, particularly the Metro Atlanta Counties, for the 2018 year plan beginning in January.
Neither Medicare nor employer-sponsored health plans will be affected; only the individual market is being disrupted. And what a disruption this will be! At this point, there are only a couple of carriers offering coverage in the Metro Atlanta area for 2018. Time will tell us more, but unfortunately, we are running out of time. Open enrollment is fast-approaching!
I can help you! Give me a call and I will be happy to help you navigate the ever-changing world of insurance.
