You must receive all routine care from plan providers unless you select the BlueCHiP for Medicare Value (HMO-POS), BlueCHiP for Medicare Extra, or BlueCHiP for Medicare Preferred (HMO-POS) plan. If you select the BlueCHiP for Medicare Value, BlueCHiP for Medicare Extra, or BlueCHiP for Medicare Preferred plan, with the exception of emergency or urgent care, ambulance, or dialysis services, it may cost more to get care from out-of-network providers.
