Health Plan - Highmark BCBS Medicare Advantage

Medicare Advantage Implementation Logo

Beginning January 1, 2023, the State of Delaware Group Health Insurance Plan will offer one Medicare plan option - Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) Delaware’s Freedom Blue PPO Medicare Advantage Plan (with Part D prescription through SilverScript). The State of Delaware will no longer offer the Highmark BCBS Delaware Special Medicfill Medicare Supplement Plan with or without prescription.

The Highmark BCBS Delaware Freedom Blue PPO plan matches the benefits and out-of-pocket costs for care offered under the Special Medicfill plan today, with added benefits. Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage will continue to be offered through SilverScript (administered by CVS Caremark).

Do you have questions about why the change in Medicare coverage and who is responsible? Below is information about the State Employee Benefits Committee (SEBC), responsible for control and management of all employee and pensioner health benefit coverages and the Retirement Benefits Study Committee (RBSC), tasked with exploring options to reduce the State’s unfunded retiree healthcare liability in accordance with Executive Order #51.
