Medicare Supplement Plan C covers most of your Medicare out-of-pocket costs. The only exceptions are excess charges for Part B. (An excess charge means that you are charged more than the Medicare-approved amount.)
As of January 1, 2020, Medicare supplements sold to people who are new to Medicare** are no longer allowed to cover the Part B deductible. Because of this, Plan C isn't available if you're new to Medicare on or after January 1, 2020.
If you already have Plan C and are covered prior to January 1, 2020, you'll be able to keep your plan. If you were eligible for Medicare before January 1, 2020, but haven't enrolled yet, you may be able to buy this plan.

*The application you submit to Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota, along with other information we may collect, is how we determine your eligibility for coverage and rates in effect at the time coverage is issued.
When and if a policy for you is approved, the actual rates may vary from the rates on this page, based on your specific application and additional information required by BCBSND to complete the application process. BCBSND reserves the right to change rates from time to time.
** People new to Medicare are those who turn 65 on or after January 1, 2020, and those who first become eligible for Medicare benefits due to age, disability, or end-stage renal disease on or after January 1, 2020.
