When you choose a supplement plan to help fill the gaps in Medicare coverage, you're choosing from a set of standardized policies. The federal government requires insurance companies to offer the same policies. So, how do you choose?
You should choose the company you can trust. BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina has been offering peace of mind to Palmetto State seniors for more than 60 years. Being a BlueCross member gives you access to the doctors and hospitals of your choice, and we offer a variety of ways to make your health care dollars go further.

Would you like to save up to an extra 20 percent on your Medicare supplement policy? Blue Select® is a Medicare supplement with built-in savings.
You'll enjoy the same benefits as standard Medicare supplement policies. The big difference is in how you use the Medicare Part A benefit — the part concerning hospital coverage.
We've teamed up with local hospitals to offer you this exciting coverage. In exchange for a lower monthly premium, you agree to use one of our hospital partners when you need inpatient health care services. As long as you use a participating hospital, the Medicare Part A deductible is covered. And you can still visit your same doctor.
