Would you like a Medicare Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan with a low premium, dental benefits and much more? With Medicare BlueSM Saver (PPO), you can enjoy all of the benefits that the original Medicare plan offers and more.
Medicare Blue Saver (PPO) is open to all South Carolina residents who have Medicare Part A and Part B.
The monthly premium for Medicare Blue Saver (PPO) is $0 for Upstate and Midlands residents and $45 for Coastal and Rural residents. If you currently pay a premium for Medicare Part A and/or Medicare Part B, you must continue paying your premium in order to keep Medicare Part A and/or Medicare Part B and remain a member of this plan.
BlueCross has formed a network of doctors, specialists and hospitals. To receive full benefits:
You can find an up-to-date list of the doctors, vision care providers and hospitals in our network in the Provider Directory or search using our Doctor and Hospital Finder.
To search for providers participating in the Medicare Advantage network in other states, you can use the Blue National Doctor & Hospital Finder. Be sure to choose Medicare Advantage PPO as the product type.
Just show your BlueCross ID card when you visit an in-network dental care provider for services. If you choose to go to a dental care provider who is not in the network, you may be required to pay the provider at the time of service and file a claim with Avesis for reimbursement.
You can get a dental benefits claim form for out-of-network dental services by calling Avesis at 1-977-225-7460, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. (TTY users call 1-800-735-8583).
