Assistance for members in need
A partnership with Social Service Coordinators (SSC), a private social service agency, helps BCBSM identify members who may be eligible for Medicare Savings Programs (MSPs) or Part D assistance, and then helps them enroll.
MSPs are federally funded, state-administered programs that help Medicare beneficiaries with their health care costs. MSPs pay a portion or, in some cases, the entire Medicare Part B premium; and they may also pay certain plan copays. SSC field coordinators help members complete the application and gather the necessary documentation for enrollment. Upon request, SSC will send a representative to meet with the member in his or her home.
For more information, call SSC's Outreach Center at 1-866-631-5967, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday. TTY users call 1-877-644-3244.

Important information about these plans
Medicare Plus Blue and Prescription Blue are PPO and PDP plans with a Medicare contract. Enrollment in Medicare Plus Blue and Prescription Blue depends on contract renewal.
Medicare Plus Blue PPO
Medicare Plus Blue PPO is available to all Medicare beneficiaries who are Michigan residents and are entitled to receive services under Medicare Part A and enrolled in Part B.
With the exception of emergency or urgent care, it will cost more to get care from non-plan or non-preferred providers. Your responsibility will be greater out-of-network when the out-of-network coinsurance is based on the Medicare-allowed amount and the contracted amount is lower. You may receive services from any provider who accepts Original Medicare. Your out-of-pocket costs will be lower if you choose a network provider. To find a network provider, visit http://www.bcbsm.com/medicare/find-a-doctor/.
Prescription Blue PDP
Prescription Blue PDP is available to all Medicare beneficiaries who are Michigan residents entitled to receive services under Medicare Part A and/or enrolled in Part B.

Limitations, copayments and restrictions may apply.
Our network includes approximately 2,400 Michigan retail pharmacies, representing approximately 98 percent of all Michigan pharmacies. Nationwide, most chain pharmacies are in our network, as well as long-term care and home infusion pharmacies and Indian/Tribal/Urban (Indian Health Service) pharmacies.
In general, benefits are only available at contracted network pharmacies. Plan drugs may be covered in special circumstances; for instance, illness while traveling outside of the plan's service area where there is no network pharmacy. You may have to pay more than your normal cost-sharing amount if you get your drugs at an out-of-network pharmacy. Quantity limitation and restrictions may apply. In addition, you will likely have to pay the pharmacy's full charge for the drug and submit documentation to receive reimbursement from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.

During this time, you will be responsible for paying your premium.
