BlueMedicare HMO PrimeTime and BlueMedicare HMO LifeTime are network-based plans offered by Florida Blue HMO, one of our subsidiaries. These are ideal plans for someone who wants preventative care coverage and a primary care physician to help coordinate services with contracting plan specialists and hospitals.
If BlueMedicare HMO PrimeTime and BlueMedicare HMO LifeTime members choose to go out-of-network for care, they are responsible for the entire cost of the service, however, they will be covered for medically-necessary emergencies when traveling outside of the service area.
BlueMedicare HMO PrimeTime and BlueMedicare HMO LifeTime offer zero monthly plan premiums with set copayments. What’s more, out-of-pocket costs are usually lower than Original Medicare, so it’s easy to budget health care dollars.
Plans also include Medicare Part D Prescription Drug coverage at no additional premium.
Please note that with any Medicare Advantage plan, members are required to continue paying their Medicare Part B (medical insurance) premium unless paid for by Medicaid or another third party. This is a Medicare Advantage plan, not a Medicare Supplement plan.
