Medicare Plans - Summary of Benefits

WSHIP's Medical Supplement Plan is for qualified individuals enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B. WSHIP pays as secondary insurance and covers patient responsibility for eligible expenses with the exception of the deductible amount for Medicare Part B, which you will be responsible for. This plan does not provide prescription drug coverage except supplemental benefits for medications covered under Medicare Part B. Under Washington law, if you live in a county with a reasonable choice of Medicare Advantage Plans, you are ineligible for WSHIP unless you have End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) since persons with ESRD typically cannot enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan.

WSHIP's Basic Plan and Basic Plus Plan are closed to new enrollment.
