What if I'm with an HMO that doesn't participate in this area?
As long as you apply within 63 days from losing your coverage you would be considered Guarantee Issue, otherwise you will have to medically qualify through the underwriting department if you are over 65 or past six months from your Medicare Part B effective date.
What if the policy will still cover me, but I want to switch to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas anyway?
If you are past your 65th birthday or more than six months from your Medicare Part B effective date, you would have to medically qualify. If you are just turning 65 or are within the six months of your Medicare Part B effective date, you can enroll in a policy of your choice.
Can I have information sent to me if I still live in another state?
