Skip Navigation LinksHome > Benefits > Blue Advantage

The LGHIB and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama are excited to introduce your new, comprehensive Medicare Advantage Plan (PPO)! This new plan called Blue Advantage (PPO) will combine all of the benefits of your health and prescription drug coverage under one all-inclusive and convenient plan.

Effective January 1, 2018, your new Blue Advantage plan will replace your current LGHIB health insurance plan and LGHIB BlueRx EGWP plan. There is no action required by you, as long as you are currently enrolled in both Medicare Part A and Part B.

Changes to note, effective January 1, 2018:

  • You will receive your new ID card in December, prior to the change in coverage. You will be able to use this ID card for all of your hospital and doctor visits, as well as your prescription drug needs (if you have not opted out of prescription drug coverage).
  • Dependents that are not Medicare-eligible will remain on the current LGHIB health and prescription drug plan and should retain their current ID card.
