This tutorial gives general information about our tiered network plan designs. There are currently three tiered provider networks called HMO Blue Options v.4, HMO Blue New England Options v.4, and Preferred Blue PPO Options v.4. In our tiered plans, members pay different levels of cost share (copayments, coinsurance, and/or deductibles) depending on the benefits tier of the provider furnishing the services. A provider’s benefits tier may change. Overall changes to the benefits tiers of providers will happen no more than once each calendar year. For help in finding the benefits tier of a provider, visit the online provider search tool at www.bluecrossma.com and search for the appropriate network.
