As a Service Benefit Plan member, you can choose your own physician, hospitals, and other healthcare providers. To get care, simply call the provider’s office to set up an appointment. You do not need a referral. If you need care after hours, call your doctor or go to an in-network urgent care center. In the case of a life-threatening emergency, always call 911 or your local emergency services.
Your doctor will usually arrange any hospital care that you need. All hospital care except for emergency services must be preapproved by your health plan. Please refer to the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Service Benefit Plan brochure for details. Visit our provider directory to find a nationwide listing of Preferred providers.
