What you get with your plan
Along with the healthcare that our plans cover, you get many other advantages.
Save money, stay healthy, be informed
Lower prices for healthcare
We work with doctors and other healthcare providers to ensure you receive high-quality care at lower costs than you'd pay without your BCBSRI plan. When you receive a "Healthcare Services Summary" from us in the mail, it'll show how much you saved.
Compare costs for medical services
Higher costs don’t always mean higher quality. You could save hundreds or even thousands of dollars depending on where you receive care. Compare costs before your next visit or procedure at My Cost Calculator.
