BCBS MN: Medicare Advantage Cost Plans

Contact Sales@LeClairGroup.com with your questions or to request an appointment.


Medicare performs a two-plan test annually to determine which counties can continue offering Cost Plans for the following plan year. If there are two or more competing Medicare Advantage plans, with a combined 5,000 or more members in a county during the current and previous plan year, plans will no longer be able to offer the Cost Plan in that county.

Based on the analysis for the 2021 plan year, Medicare Platinum Blue Cost Plans will remain in effect for in all 21 counties, until December 31, 2021. Medicare will determine and provide information on the availability of Cost Plans for 2022 in early 2021.
