  • Visiting the Doctor and Other Providers
    Your primary care physician (PCP) will coordinate your health care. You're not required to see your PCP before visiting a specialist, but it's strongly recommended so that your PCP is fully aware of the medical care you're receiving. Learn more about choosing a PCP and how to access your health care.
    • For Blue Medicare HMO, you must use plan providers, except in emergency/urgent care situations, or for out-of-area renal dialysis. If you obtain routine care from out-of-network providers, neither Medicare nor Blue Medicare HMO are responsible for the costs.
    • Member liability with Blue Medicare PPO may be greater for services received out of network than services received in network. Many out-of-network services are subject to coinsurance, which is based on the Medicare allowed amount and not on the potentially lower contract amount. With the exception of emergency or urgent care, it may cost more to get care from non-plan or non-preferred providers.
  • Using Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage
    If your plan includes Medicare prescription drug coverage, learn how easy it is to fill your prescriptions at a local pharmacy or through mail order. In order to obtain the greatest savings on your prescription medications, please visit one of our preferred network providers (CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Walmart and Epic pharmacies). For more information visit our Rx (PDP) site.
