    There will be no benefit or provider network changes with the transition to BlueReliance Medicare Supplement. Member ID cards with the new name will be sent to current Medicare Supplement members after July 1.

    BlueReliance Medicare Supplement plans are available to meet a range of coverage needs and budgets. Highlights:

    • Hospital expenses – Most BlueReliance Medicare Supplement plans cover the Part A deductible as well as eligible expenses for an additional 365 days of inpatient hospital care when Part A Medicare benefits stop
    • Medical expenses – BlueReliance Medicare Supplement plans cover Part B coinsurance for eligible medical expenses after the deductible has been met, including: doctor visits; outpatient hospital care; diagnostic services; and home health care

    Also, with a Blue Reliance Medicare Supplement plan, members are not limited to a provider network.
