Berlin, VT, October 19, 2020— Vermont Blue Advantage is proud to announce it was awarded a contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, allowing the affiliate of Blue Cross® and Blue Shield® of Vermont to provide Medicare Advantage plans to older Vermont for coverage beginning January 1st.

A big part of healthy aging is having the right health coverage in place. If you’re age 65 or older, your best path to peace of mind begins with Medicare. Medicare can help you maintain your wellness, manage your expenses, and access the care you need if you do become ill.
We are pleased to announce Pamela Getsie as President of Vermont Blue Advantage®. The company was formed by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont to offer seniors Vermont-grown Medicare Advantage plans. She notes that “Medicare Advantage plans are growing in popularity in Vermont and nationally,” as an alternative to Original Medicare. Over 100,000 seniors in Vermont have Medicare-only coverage, yet Medicare doesn’t cover everything.
