Forever Blue 751 (PPO)
BlueCard® Network Sharing Program
All of our plans cover you worldwide but if you travel often, you can enjoy flexibility with the Medicare Advantage Network Sharing Program through this plan.
- Links Blue Cross plans and simplifies billing.
- Pay the same as you would in-network for all plan-covered services outside of Western New York in participating areas.**
- Find out if a doctor or facility participates in this program by calling 1-800-810-BLUE (2583) and select option 2.
**In order for services to be considered in-network while you're outside of the service area, the provider must participate with the local BlueCard® network sharing program in the service area and both you and the provider must be located in the same area when you receive care. Outside the U.S. you may be asked to pay 100% of the cost at the time of travel. You would then submit a claim to us to be reimbursed for your in-network cost-share.
