Medicare Plus BlueSM and BCN AdvantageSM are PPO, HMO, and HMO-POS plans with Medicare contracts. Enrollment in Medicare Plus Blue and BCN Advantage depends on contract renewal.

With the exception of emergency or urgent care, it will cost more to get care from non-plan or non-preferred providers. You may receive services from any provider who accepts Original Medicare. Your out-of-pocket costs will be lower if you choose a network provider. To find a network provider, visit Find a Doctor.

Limitations, copayments and restrictions may apply. You must continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium. Consult your Evidence of Coverage for specific information about your benefits and cost-sharing responsibilities.

The benefit information provided is a brief summary, not a complete description of benefits. For more information, contact the plan's Customer Service center. Benefits, premium, copayments or coinsurance may change on Jan. 1 of each year.
