EPO Plans are now Tiered PPO Plans

The exclusive provider organization (EPO) is now a tiered preferred provider organization (PPO) plan.  If you are on a 2015 EPO plan you will be transitioned to a Tiered PPO plans effective 1/1/16 (unless you choose a different plan). While EPO plans offered in-network benefits only, the new Tiered PPO plans will offer both in-network and out-of-network benefits. That means you can have the flexibility of a PPO with the lower prices of a two-tier hospital network, plus out-of-network benefits. Of course, you pay less when you stay in the Blue Cross network. But if you need to, you have the flexibility to go out of the network.  Learn more about network options and definitions.

BlueCard® works for travel

.
PPO and Tiered PPO plans cover emergency treatment at any hospital, wherever you  travel within the U.S. — as well as non-emergency care when you visit participating BlueCard providers in the U.S. or abroad. You can see any provider you wish, but you’ll pay less out of pocket when you use BlueCard providers and hospitals.
