Medicare Supplement Insurance
Retirees want to live their lives to the fullest. With special benefits designed for Retired Indiana Public Employees Association (RIPEA) members, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield provides a health plan that helps retirees be their healthiest to enjoy the things they love.
When combined with Medicare, Anthem benefits for RIPEA members can help round out health coverage. Participating members are protected from many of the costs not covered by Medicare and receive benefits that go beyond Medicare coverage. These Anthem plans are available to all RIPEA members and their dependents over age 65 enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B.
One of the plans is a comprehensive plan that mirrors Medicare supplemental plan F. The other plan is a Medicare supplement plan G. These are excellent insurance plans that cover you anywhere you travel in the United States. They have been negotiated by an experienced insurance consultant retained by RIPEA.
Members who enroll in the Comprehensive Plan may also add the Value Plus Option which would enhance their coverage for certain routine expenses not covered by Medicare such as dental, vision, and hearing exams.
