Blue Shield CA Extends Medicare Supplement Year Round SEP to 2016

Blue Shield of California has announced that they will be extending the year round SEP for Medicare Supplements until June 30, 2016.

This SEP (special election period) is sort of a year round  "Birthday Rule".  In California, Medicare Supplement subscribers may change their Supplement to any like or less Supplement on their birthday plus 30 days.  In this case, that privilege is  offered by Blue Shield at any time during the year.  

If you currently have a Medicare Supplement Plan with another carrier, now might be a good time to check and see if Blue Shield offers a more competitive rate.  Remember, Medicare Supplement Plans (A-N) are standardized supplements.  Every carrier's Plan F Supplement is identical, as are all lettered Supplement plans.
