How to use networks to get the most out of your benefits:

  • Doctors and hospitals in your network offer specially negotiated rates for services – so you'll pay a lower copay amount when you use them.
  • If you use a doctor or hospital that isn't in your network, you'll pay more for your care and BlueCross will pay less. This applies even in an emergency situation, so it helps to know which local health care facilities are in network.
  • You’ll also pay the difference between what the doctor charges for care and what BlueCross agreed to pay (also known as balance billing) when you go out of network. To avoid higher costs, confirm your doctor, hospital or urgent care facility is in your network before receiving care.

What if you travel out of state?

BlueCross offers the largest physician networks in the state. But you’re also covered anywhere outside of the state and in nearly every country and territory around the world - no matter which network you choose - through the BlueCard program.
