Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield launching veterans-focused Medicare Advantage plan

Excellus BlueCross BlueShield will offer a Medicare Advantage plan tailored to veterans in 2023, the Rochester, N.Y.-based payer said Oct. 14. 

The plan, Medicare BlueSalute, is designed to complement Veterans Administration benefits. 

"We all know how important it is to honor the service of local veterans," Karen Bodley, Excellus BCBS vice president for Medicare, said. "It's also important to have health coverage that meets their needs and pairs well with existing U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs coverage — at no extra cost to them."

Other payers have also announced new Medicare Advantage plans for veterans. Humana said Oct. 12 it will launch a veteran-focused Medicare Advantage plan co-branded with USAA.
