If you have chosen one of Blue Shield’s new 2014 Individual and Family Plans, which can be purchased directly from Blue Shield or through Covered California, we would like you to know that Eisenhower Medical Center is not part of Blue Shield’s network for those plans. If you purchased one of these plans, Eisenhower is considered "out of network," which means you could still have services at Eisenhower, but your “out of network” benefits will apply for Eisenhower outpatient clinics, urgent care locations and hospital services, other than emergency services.
Even though Eisenhower is not part of Blue Shield’s new 2014 Individual and Family Plans network, we are still a participating network member for all Blue Shield group plans and grandfathered Individual and Family Plans.
If you want a plan that applies your “in network” benefits to services at Eisenhower, you still have the option of changing your coverage. Speak with a certified Covered California agent about switching to either a Health Net PPO plan or Anthem Blue Cross PPO plan with Covered California or you can contact either company directly if you do not wish to purchase through Covered California.
These plans will give you “in network” benefits for Eisenhower services at our outpatient clinics, urgent care locations and for hospital services. If you would prefer to be in network with Eisenhower, you can still change your coverage, but time is running out. Open enrollment ends in March.
