Plan 65

Questions Regarding People Enrolled with Blue Cross and Blue Shield from Another State

Can someone switch from BCBS of another state to BCBSKS?
Yes this would be considered an interplan transfer.

What if the BCBS coverage I have now is an HMO?
If you are leaving the coverage area of the HMO it would qualify as a Guarantee Issue.

Can I switch to any policy I want?
If you are within six months of your Medicare Part B effective date or just turning 65, then yes, you can choose any policy you want.

Do I have to medically qualify?
If you are within six months of your Medicare Part B effective date or your 65th birthday, no. If you are over 65 or more than six months from your Medicare Part B effective date and you want to buy a policy that has more benefits than the plan you are on now, yes. If you want a policy that has the same or less coverage than your current policy, you do not have to medically qualify.
