I'm Eligible for Medicare

Cedars-Sinai has served the needs of Medicare beneficiaries since the program began in 1966. Cedars-Sinai is included in both traditional Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans. Coverage also is available for people who have both Medicare and Medi-Cal (dual eligible).

If you have traditional or original Medicare (Part A and/or B), including Medicare supplement insurance (Medigap) plans, you will have coverage for care from Cedars-Sinai and many of our doctors.

  • Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage or a Medicare Health plan, is purchased from a private insurance company approved by Medicare and typically organized like a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) or Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) insurance plan.
  • Part C puts coverage from both Part A and Part B into one plan. Most of these plans also include Medicare Part D drug coverage.

Cedars-Sinai participates in the following Medicare Advantage plans:

  • Blue Shield of California (HMO)
    • Blue Shield Inspire (HMO)        
    • Blue Shield Vital (HMO)
    • Blue Shield 65 Plus (HMO)
  • CareMore Health Delivered by Anthem Blue Cross
    • Anthem Medi Blue StartSmart Plus (HMO)
    • Anthem Medi Blue Value Plus (HMO)
    • Anthem Medi Blue Connect Plus (HMO)
    • Anthem Medi Blue Breathe (HMO C-SNP)
    • Anthem Medi Blue ESRD (HMO C-SNP)
    • Anthem Medi Blue Heart (HMO C-SNP)
    • Anthem Medi Blue Diabetes (HMO C-SNP)
  • UnitedHealthcare
    • AARP® MedicareComplete® SecureHorizons® Focus (HMO)
    • AARP® MedicareComplete® SecureHorizons® Premier (HMO)
    • AARP® MedicareComplete® SecureHorizons® Plan 1 (HMO)
    • AARP® MedicareComplete® SecureHorizons® Essential (HMO)
    • UnitedHealthcare® MedicareComplete® Assure (HMO)

If you enroll in an HMO plan, you must choose a primary care doctor in either the Cedars-Sinai Medical Group or Cedars-Sinai Health Associates and be referred to specialists within these groups. These plans have options that include Part D coverage.

If you are eligible for both Medicare and Medi-Cal, you should do one of two things to ensure coverage for Cedars-Sinai:

  • Opt out of Cal MediConnect and keep the same fee-for-service Medicare benefit that you already have or 
  • Enroll in the Cal MediConnect program through Anthem Cal MediConnect (MMP), which is an HMO product.
