With BlueLincs HMO, budgeting for your health care needs is easy. You'll have low out-of-pocket expenses!

 

There's no deductible to meet. You pay only a small physician's office copayment for most services, such as:

  • Immunizations
  • Periodic physical exams
  • Well-baby and well-child care
  • Annual vision and hearing screening (to age 19)
  • Surgical procedures in your physician's office
  • Allergy testing

As a BlueLincs HMO Member, you choose a physician for yourself and each member of your family from hundreds of Primary Care Physicians (PCP).

 

Your Primary Care Physician is your personal health care consultant, working with you to coordinate all your health care needs. Think of your PCP as a knowledgeable resource in today's complex health care environment.

 

If you need a specialist's expertise, your PCP can refer you to one of the many specialists in the BlueLincs HMO network.

 

You decide what's best for you — a doctor near your job? Home? Child's school? It's up to you. Consult the Provider Finder® to find a physician in the BlueLincs HMO network who best fits your needs!


Planning a vacation? Make sure your health benefits go with you when you're away from home. BlueLincs members can use the BlueCard® program to find care outside the BlueLincs service area.

 

With the BlueCard program, HMO members can use the Provider Finder®, 24-hours-a-day, at 1-800-810-BLUE or by visiting http://www.bcbs.com/. Members pay required copayments or deductibles, and claims are filed for the member by the health care provider. All routine or follow-up care must be pre-arranged by the member's primary care physician before the member leaves town.


There are never any claims to file for routine care, when your care is coordinated by your BlueLincs HMO Primary Care Physician.

 

When you visit your doctor, you pay only a small office copayment. And if you need a prescription, a prescription copayment is all you owe.

 

You receive the health care you need, and BlueLincs HMO handles the paperwork. That's real convenience — and savings!
