Medicare Supplement Plan G* offers the most comprehensive protection available to Illinois seniors looking to enhance Medicare. Coverage from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois can give you the peace of mind you deserve with a plan from a trusted provider you can depend on.
Plan G offers 100% coverage for your Part A deductible ($1,600) as well as total coverage for the remaining charge for days 61-90 in the hospital after Medicare pays ($400 a day). For days 91 and beyond, this plan pays for 100% of Medicare-eligible expenses and 365 extra days of coverage after lifetime reserves are used up. Plan also pays for the costs of receiving skilled nursing care until day 101, 100% of the costs of the first three pints of blood, and your Medicare copayment/coinsurance for hospice care. With Plan G, you can count on coverage for the remainder of Part B excess charges, after your Part B deductible is paid in full. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois will never terminate or refuse to renew your plan because of the condition of your health. As long as you continue to pay your premium, your benefits will be available.
