When it comes to Medicare, you have options

Replace Original Medicare with a Medicare Advantage Plan

Blue Shield of California Medicare Advantage Plans include all the benefits of Medicare Parts A and B, prescription drug coverage, and other extra benefits.

Choose Medicare Advantage if you:
are looking for cost savings
need prescription drug coverage
want vision and dental
want the convenience of one bill

Add a Medicare Supplement plan to Original Medicare

Medicare Supplement (also called Medigap) plans add coverage to Original Medicare. This helps with some of the costs Medicare Parts A and B don't cover like copayments, deductibles, and coinsurance.

Choose Medicare Supplement if you:
want to see any doctor who accepts Medicare
have coverage from an employer
want to customize your coverage
travel out of state

When am I eligible to apply for Medicare?

Your initial eligibility window for Medicare opens 3 months before the month of your 65th birthday. It extends 3 months after your birthday month.
