Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC) has been protecting and serving Kansas City for over 75 years. Our Blue Medicare Advantage plans bundle Original Medicare benefits with Part D prescription drug coverage and additional benefits not found in Original Medicare.
Choose between our $0 Complete and $29 Plus plans. With Blue Medicare Advantage, you won’t have the burden of deductibles, those expenses you have to pay under Original Medicare before you start receiving coverage.
As a Blue Medicare Advantage member, you’ll have a limit on medical expenses each year, a protection not found in Original Medicare plans. No matter how many times you see the doctor or go to the hospital, your total Medicare covered out-of-pocket costs are capped.
Blue KC is leading the way with a network of doctors who provide a coordinated care approach, designed to lower total costs and keep you healthy.
Enjoy unlimited visits to fitness centers at no additional charge through our SilverSneakers program, included in your Blue Medicare Advantage membership. Additional benefits like Dental, Vision and Hearing are included in one or more Blue Medicare Advantage plans.
