My wife and I are retiring soon. WMH - July 1. JPH - December 2011. I am 69. She will be 66 in Dec. Neither of us has Medicare. We are covered by her employer plan until Dec. We are trying to find out what we need to do and when. What’s available? Any information that you may send will be appreciated. We are residents of Arkansas.

I think this one is perfect for me. I think I finally get the first point “1) Blue Cross Medigap programs, like all Medigap programs, are intended only for people age 65 or older, who are enrolled in both Parts A and B of Medicare. ” First I sign up for PArts A and B, then I’ll get Medigap. So simple but wasn’t sure of the order.

well i think I really appreciate with that. I have already health, medical, accidental, life insurance so I secure now but I’m concerned about what happens when I get older.

I am turning 65 in Dec. I have applied and gotten my Medicare card Part A and B. My employer said I have to get my own Part B insurance and I will be reimbursed because I am not going to collect SS payments yet. My main question is that my employer is transfering me to Supplement B BlueCross-CMS 65 Plan A. I don’t know what that is, is it major medical coverage? can you help?

I think a lot of people think just having Medicare A and B is enough. We learned this the hard way. My parents didn’t have medicare supplemental and found out that Medicare doesn’t cover some very expensive things. Just the minimum. I wished I pushed them for a medigap when they turned 65.

From the Social Security Administration I received a statment that my plan “B” coverage coats $ 259.70.
Do I need a plan “B” coverage from Blue Cross Blue Shield ?
By SilverBear1 on December 24, 2011
The way I understand it you must get plan B the social security administration. Then once you have plan a and plan b, you can buy Medigap from Blue Cross Blue Shield. You many want to contact the phone number in the article above to confirm.

I have blue cross supplemental. What will the monthly rate increase be under Obamacare?
MEDICOVERAGE AGENT RESPONSE
Thank you for your question. If you currently have a Medigap plan, you will stay on it and will not move to one of the plans offered under the Affordable Care Act. Additionally your Medgap plan monthly rate shouldn’t be directly impacted by Obamacare.

I am interested in buying medigap policy.
1. How soon after I buy,it becomes effective? any waiting period?
Must cover my out of pocket expense for hospitalisation
3. When is open enrollment period for illinois?
4 I have medicare -A & B—since feb 13.How soon must I buy this policy without penalty?
MEDICOVERAGE AGENT RESPONSE
Thank you for your questions. Medigap plans can cover coinsurance for hospitalization, and some also cover your Part A Hospital deductible. If you’re looking for a comprehensive plan check out Medigap Plan F.
Enrolling in a Medigap plan has an initial enrollment period, which does not require health records, for 6 months after you are eligible for Part B. If you wait beyond this period, you would have to go through medical underwriting and may have to pay a higher premium. Due to the specificity of your questions please call 800-930-7956 so that an agent may walk you through this.
