Consider this!

Good eyesight, hearing, and oral hygiene are so important to your quality of life, but some things, like glasses, hearing aids, and routine dental exams aren't always covered by Medicare. If you're thinking about becoming a Medex member, or you're already a member, you may also want to consider adding our optional rider coverage, like the Medex Vision and Hearing benefit plan**, or our Dental Blue 65 coverage.

New this year! We're offering three affordable dental plans sure to complement your medical coverage.

To learn more about these coverage options, and to see if you're eligible, contact Sales at 1-800-678-2265
(TTY/TDD: 1-800-522-1254).

 

Prescription Drug Plans (Part D)

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts offers these Prescription Drug Plans through a contract with the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). These popular plans cover prescription brand name drugs and generics. You can also get one to complement your Supplemental plan for more coverage.

Group Plans

If you're interested in learning more about health and prescription drug coverage available through your employer, contact your benefits administrator. If you're a member of a group plan and looking for plan information, view our member section.

All Medicare Advantage plans agree to stay in the program for a full year at a time. Each year, the plans decide whether to continue for another year. Even if a Medicare Advantage plan leaves the program, you will not lose Medicare coverage. If a plan decides not to continue, it must send you a letter at least 90 days before your coverage will end. The letter will explain your options for Medicare coverage in your area.

 

*Medicare evaluates plans based on a 5-Star rating system. Star ratings are calculated each year and may change from one year to the next.

**Medex Vision and Hearing benefit plans are only available to Medex Core and Medex Bronze members.
