Why do you need a Blue Shield Medicare Prescription Drug Plan?

Original Medicare offers basic coverage. But it does not cover all the services and supplies you need. For example, it does not cover prescription drugs. Our stand-alone Medicare Prescription Drug Plans provide a wide range of cost and coverage options and can help you cover your prescription drug costs. These plans work well when combined with one of our Medicare Supplement plans.
