2021 Medicare Advantage Plans

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR MEMBERS

Why choose a Medicare Advantage plan from BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina? With BlueCross TotalSM (PPO), BlueCross TotalSM Value (PPO) and BlueCross SecureSM (HMO), you can get the level of coverage you need at a price you can afford.

How does a Medicare Advantage PPO Plan Work?

It works just like any other PPO plan. You pay less when you choose in-network doctors and hospitals. With set copayments, you know ahead of time what you owe for your doctor visits. With the exception of emergencies or urgent care, you may pay more to get care from out-of-network doctors.

How does a Medicare Advantage HMO Plan Work
