Your Medicare Plan: What's new for 2014?

Remember! Medicare's annual enrollment season for 2014 runs from October 15 through December 7. This is the time to evaluate your current coverage and decide if you need to enroll in a different plan. If you're satisfied with your plan, do nothing. Your coverage will continue automatically.


Blue Cross MedicareRx (PDP)SM now offers three plans from which to choose that may meet all of your prescription drug needs. That includes our new, lower cost option which has lower copays at preferred pharmacies. With CVS, Walmart, and PPOK part of the preferred pharmacy network, it's likely that there's always one nearby.

Visit for details. Other pharmacies are available in our network. Visit for a current network pharmacy listing.

Blue Cross Medicare Advantage (HMO-POS)SM, and

How is Blue Cross Medicare Advantage different from Medicare Supplement insurance?

Medicare Supplement insurance is designed to pay some of the health care costs that Original Medicare doesn't cover: copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles. Blue Cross Medicare Advantage provides all of the services that Original Medicare covers, plus includes prescription drug coverage (Part D) and additional benefits. You cannot have both Medicare Supplement and Blue Cross Medicare Advantage.

At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma, we are committed to making our Medicare plans easy to understand. If you have any questions, call us to talk one-on-one with a product specialist. We’re here to help.
