Household Discount on Medicare Supplement Plans with BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina

BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina recently announced that they will expand eligibility for a household discount on Medicare Supplement plans. 
Previously, the discount was only available if a husband and wife were both members on a Medicare Supplement plan.
Happily, this has now been expanded. From their announcement:

“Medicare Supplement members who purchased their plans June 2010 and after are now eligible for our household discount if he or she resides at the same address as another BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina or BlueChoice® HealthPlan member.  This includes all current Medicare Supplement, Affordable Care Act (ACA), Medicare Advantage, small group, large group, Medicaid and State plan holders.”

Essentially, if you reside with someone else who is covered on a BlueCross BlueShield health insurance plan, or by BlueChoice, then you are eligible for a household discount on your Medicare supplement plan.
