Meijer is partnering with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Beginning October 15, seniors can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan called Medicare Plus Blue PPO + Meijer.

For those who are Medicare-eligible, Blue Cross members and Meijer shoppers, the plan features a $0 monthly premium, $0 annual deductible, $0 primary care visits, $0 copay on many generic prescription drugs, and a $660 in-store-allowance. Comprehensive dental and vision coverage is also included. Meijer says the $660 in-store-allowance can be applied to health and wellness items and members with chronic conditions can apply it to healthy foods.
