GHI Senior Care

If you are a Medicare-eligible retiree, you have the option of enrolling in GHI/Empire BlueCross BlueShield Senior Care program, a Medicare Supplement program.

After you have satisfied the Medicare Part B deductible, you will be responsible for an additional $50 of covered Senior Care services per individual, per calendar year. GHI then pays the Medicare Part B coinsurance (that is, 20% of Medicare Allowed Charges) for covered services for that calendar year.

Please note that the separate $25 calendar year deductible for private duty nursing, ambulance, and durable medical equipment will remain unchanged.
