BCBSNC, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina announced the new rates for their Blue Medicare Supplement plans. The good news is that the NCDOI has just approved their 2012 Medicare Supplement rates. The new rates will be available on April 23, 2012 through authorized BCBSNC agents.
In most cases, the plan rates either decreased or remained the same. The new rates along with the SilverSneakers partnership, competitively position BCBSNC in the Medicare supplement marketplace.
The new attained age rates, effective June 1, 2012, as well as the rates for the previous most popular “entry-age” plans are attached below. Most of the current customers enrolled on the “entry-age” plans will see a premium reduction.
