Forever Blue 770 (PPO)
Our Forever Blue 770 (PPO) Medicare Advantage Plan is designed to make Medicare easy for you. If you travel often, you can enjoy the flexibility of Medicare Advantage network sharing. You'll pay the same as you would in-network for all plan-covered services outside of Northeastern New York participating areas. It is designed to give you the freedom to see any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare nationwide.
