Plan Overview

With this PPO product, you get hospital, medical and prescription drug coverage, plus extra benefits, all in one plan. Blue Medicare Advantage Essential has a $0 monthly premium and a combined in-network and out-of-network maximum out-of-pocket limit of $4,000. This means that if you get sick or need a high cost procedure, your copays are capped once you pay the $4,000. This plan includes a $500 deductible and offers great flexibility and freedom.

You won't need to choose a Primary Care Physician (PCP) or get a referral to see a specialist. By seeing preferred providers, you'll make the most of your benefits, but you also have the freedom to go out-of-network for care at a higher rate.

To join, you must be entitled to Medicare Part A, be enrolled in Medicare Part B, and live in our service area. The Blue KC service area includes these counties in Kansas: Johnson and Wyandotte. And these counties in Missouri: Buchanan, Cass, Clay, Clinton, Jackson, Lafayette, Platte and Ray.
