A Medigap policy is private health insurance that helps supplement Original Medicare. This means it helps pay some of the health care costs that Original Medicare doesn’t cover (like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles). These are “gaps” in Medicare coverage.

If you have Original Medicare and a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare-approved amounts for covered health care costs. Then your Medigap policy pays its share. A Medigap policy is different from a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO) because those plans are ways to get Medicare benefits, (click here for a comparison of the differences) while a Medigap policy only supplements the costs of your Original Medicare benefits.

    • Billing options

      Once you have enrolled in a Blue Shield Medicare Supplement plan, you have several options for plan dues payment.

      1. Easy$Pay – Pay your plan dues with Blue Shield’s quick and convenient Easy$PaySM program, an automatic electronic transfer on the 1st or 15th of the month from your checking or savings account. There’s no check to write and no postage to pay. A record of your payment is included on your bank statement. Remember, if you choose this option, you can save $3 off your dues each month. Easy$Pay authorization instructions are included in the application within this enrollment kit.

      2. Quarterly billing – Blue Shield will bill you once every three months.

      3. Monthly billing – Blue Shield will send you a bill each month.

      With Options 2 and 3, the bill will tell you the date your payment is due.

      The dues you pay or the benefits you receive may change during the year. In either case, Blue Shield will always let you know at least 60 days in advance
