Your Medicare Plan: What's new for 2014?

Remember! Medicare's annual enrollment season for 2014 runs from October 15 through December 7. This is the time to evaluate your current coverage and decide if you need to enroll in a different plan. If you're satisfied with your plan, do nothing. Your coverage will continue automatically.


 

Blue Cross MedicareRx (PDP)SM now offers three plans from which to choose that may meet all of your prescription drug needs. That includes our new, lower cost option which has lower copays at preferred pharmacies. With CVS, Walmart, H-E-B, and Good Neighbor part of the preferred pharmacy network, it's likely that there's always one nearby.
