Know How Much You Owe at the Doctor’s Office
Depending on your plan, different types of health care services only require a copay. However, some plans require a greater share of the cost up-front for office visits or outpatient procedures until you meet your plan’s deductible.

When your plan or your doctor requires you to pay up-front for services, ask about Real-Time Claims Adjudication – a tool your doctor’s office can use to find the exact amount of money you need to pay based on your benefits, how much you’ve paid toward your deductible, and whether you’ve met your out-of-pocket maximum.

Improving the Quality of Care and Services
The safety and quality of care and service you receive is important. BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee’s Quality Improvement Program is evaluated every year for:

  • Quality of the care and services you and your family receive
  • Appropriateness of care you receive
  • Access to providers

BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee’s Quality Improvement Program is recognized by national quality assurance groups such as URAC. Learn more about BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee’s Quality Improvement Program by calling (423) 535-6221, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET.
