Frequently Asked Questions:

  • A Medicare Advantage Plan is a Medicare approved program that allows you to have all the rights and protections of Original Medicare. Your Medicare benefits, however, will be provided by a private insurance company such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama. This plan enhances your Original Medicare Benefits by adding Part D drug coverage and offering lower copayments. This plan does not require a supplemental plan.
  • To be eligible for Blue Advantage you must be a resident of Alabama. You must continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium (unless paid for you by Medicaid or another third party). You must also be entitled to and enrolled in Medicare Parts A & B. To be eligible for Medicare you must be 65 years of age or on disability. Our contract with CMS is renewed annually and the availability of coverage beyond the current contract year is not guaranteed.
  • If you have more than one address, you will need to provide your permanent physical address on your application. This address must match your primary address as listed with Social Security and Medicare. Your address will be used to determine your product eligibility and plan premiums. Failure to report your correct address can delay the processing of your application or result in the loss of coverage. If necessary, you may also provide an alternate address (such as a Post Office Box) where you prefer to receive mailings.
  • Premium rates for Blue Advantage plans are based on the benefit design and overall utilization of medical services.

    With all options, you are required to continue paying your Medicare Part B premium unless otherwise paid for by Medicaid or another third party. If you qualify for Low Income Subsidy, your premium may be reduced based on the level of subsidy for which you qualify.

    • Lower copays for inpatient and outpatient hospital services
    • Lower copays for doctor's office visits (both primary care and specialists)
    • No deductible for prescription drugs
    • Additional cost-savings on therapy services, radiology and diagnostic services as well as many other benefits
  • Premiums are always due on the 1st of the month and are considered late if not received by the 10th.

    There are several ways you can pay your plan premium:

    • Automatic monthly payment by E-Check, Credit Card, or Debit Card
    • Online at www.bcbsalmedicare.com after registering for myBlueCross
    • Over the telephone with Visa, MasterCard, Discover or E-Check
    • Automatic deduction from your monthly Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board benefits check
    • Mail a check
    • Set up online bill payment through your financial institution. Please be sure to include your contract number when setting up online bill payment.
  • The Annual Election Period allows you to make changes to your plan anytime between October 15 and December 7. Elections made during this time will be effective on January 1 of the following year. When Medicare has been notified of your election change, your membership with your previous MAPD and/or Part D plan will be cancelled effective December 31. To cancel coverage other than Medicare Advantage or Part D Plans (like Medicare Supplement/Medicare Select plans), please contact your insurance carrier.
  • A current Medicare Advantage plan enrollee is allowed to make a one-time change during the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period, which takes place from January 1 to March 31 or the last day of the 3rd month after their Part A and B entitlement date. This period allows you to disenroll from a Medicare Advantage plan and return to your Original Medicare- change from one Medicare Advantage plan to another Medicare Advantage plan or from one Part D plan to another Part D Plan.

    Other times that you are allowed to make changes to your coverage outside of AEP are:

    • Initial Coverage Election Period (ICEP) - three months before your Medicare eligibility effective date, the month of your Medicare eligibility date, and three months after.
    • Special Election Period (SEP) - You can change plans anytime during the year if you gain, lose, or have a change in your dual eligible or Low Income Subsidy status. You are also allowed to make elections within 60 days of the day you lose coverage with your employer and within 60 days of the day you move into a new coverage area.

    If you move outside of Alabama, Medicare will allow you 60 days from the day you move to enroll into another MAPD or Part D plan that is located in your new state.  If you are temporarily moving out of the coverage area, you are allowed to have a temporary address for up to 6 months.

  • If you are covered under an employer sponsored retiree plan, please check with your employer to determine what would happen should you choose to leave your retiree plan. Sometimes, leaving makes you ineligible to return to that plan in the future. It's best to assess your current health care needs and compare how you will be covered under your retiree plan to how you would be covered under Blue Advantage (PPO), or BlueRx and C Plus prior to making a change. If your employer does not offer retiree coverage or if you believe that Blue Advantage, BlueRx or C Plus coverage may be better for you, you can enroll online, attend a meeting with your local representatives, or call 1-888-543-9212 (TTY 711), 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week. From April 1 to September 30, on weekends and holidays, you may be required to leave a message. Calls will be returned the next business day.
