Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia (BCBSGA) will be issuing a refund to some Medicare Supplement members in Georgia. If the member had a Modernized Medicare Supplement plan on January 1, 2013 that was up to date, and received a rate increase effective that month, then they are entitled to a refund.
The refund will be for the difference in rates for one month (December 2012 – January 2013) and will average about $14 per member. If eligible former members have since passed away, the checks will be mailed “to the Estate of” the former member.
The refund checks are expected to be mailed to members on March 11, 2014. We estimate that this will impact about 24,000 BCBSGA Medicare Supplement members in Georgia.
