US Steel Retiree’s Medicare Changes

Effective January 1, 2013 all US Steel retirees had their Medicare secondary insurance dropped and they were automatically enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan. Highmark BCBS is the plan administrator and it is now their PRIMARY insurance.

I couldn’t understand why a patient’s daughter kept telling me that her dad’s Highmark was his supplement and that Medicare was his traditional insurance. After a little investigation this is what i found. So beware out there if you or a loved one is a US Steel retiree. Know that your Medicare plan changed January 1!

You can find the list of benefits hereus steel.
