Increased medical benefit coverage for cardiac, knee, hip, maternity and spine services
New BCBS networks in Tennessee and New Jersey
If you live in Tennessee or New Jersey, you’ll participate in a new statewide BCBSIL provider network. These local networks provide additional savings through lower negotiated rates for health care services. More than 95% of current in-network providers and facilities are also in these select networks; however, some providers are not in-network.
To see if your provider is in the network, or to find a new provider, go to bcbsil.com and click the Find a Doctor or Hospital link. Search as a guest > enter the location where you would like to search for care and then select the appropriate state network (i.e., New Jersey is the Horizon Managed Care Network, and Tennessee is Network S) or call your health advocate for assistance. NOTE: If you use a provider outside the select network, you will pay the separate out-of-network deductible and be subject to the out-of-network out-of-pocket maximum.
If you enroll for medical coverage for 2021 and live in Tennessee or New Jersey, you will receive a new ID card from BCBSIL by the end of 2020.
