About Medicare Extension

The trusted plan for GIC Medicare retirees

Wellpoint’s Medicare Extension is a Medicare supplemental plan available to GIC Medicare retirees. In fact, Medicare Extension is the choice of most GIC Medicare retirees. Here are a few reasons why:


 Use any doctor or hospital in the U.S., even if you’re away from home. Use Medicare participating providers to ensure you receive the highest benefits.


 Medicare Extension covers some things Medicare doesn’t, like hearing aids and eye exams.


 Your prescription drug coverage through SilverScript eliminates the coverage gap.


 You have a $10 copay for office visits, urgent care centers and retail medical clinics. That’s lower than many Medicare plans available through the GIC.


 There’s no deductible, lifetime maximum, or limit on pre-existing conditions.
