Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield unveils low cost Medicare Advantage plan for Missouri residents Posted: December 10th, 2010

By Maryalene LaPonsie

As seniors compare Medicare Advantage plans during the current open enrollment period, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Missouri is hoping residents will select their PPO. Billed as the "Zero, Zero, Zero" plan, the plan touts limited out-of-pocket expenses for participants.

Scheduled to become effective on January 1, 2011, the Anthem Medicare Preferred Core plan will be available to Medicare beneficiaries in 12 Missouri counties including the St. Louis and Springfield areas. The plan features:

  • Zero dollar premiums
  • Zero dollar co-payments for in-network primary care doctors
  • Zero dollar co-payments for preferred generic prescriptions

In addition, as required by federal health reform, there are no co-payment requirements for preventive care services.

"We are committed to helping members of the Medicare population enjoy better health at a reasonable price, including the many Baby Boomers who are entering the system for the first time," said Krista Bowers, senior vice president of the senior division of Anthem, in a statement. "They shouldn't have to skip important doctor's visits or medications because they can't afford to pay for them."

The Medicare open enrollment period runs through December 31, 2010. During open enrollment, seniors can select from original Medicare, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D plans.
