About BlueCHiP for Medicare coverage

  • With your plan, your healthcare services are paid by BlueCHiP for Medicare instead of Medicare.
  • Bring your BlueCHiP for Medicare card to medical appointments and network pharmacies. Because you have all of your medical coverage in one plan, you have the convenience of only one card to bring.
  • Your healthcare providers will file claims and be paid by BlueCHiP for Medicare.
  • Keep your Original Medicare card in a safe place, but do not bring it to medical appointments.

Do you have other coverage too?

It is important that you let us know if you have any other health insurance in addition to BlueCHiP for Medicare. We need this information in order to determine which insurance is responsible for paying your claims first. When Medicare is not responsible for paying claims first, this is called “Medicare Secondary Payer.” When you first enroll in BlueCHiP for Medicare, we will ask you to fill out a survey about your medical coverage. You can learn more about Medicare Secondary Payer at CMS.gov.
