  • Hi billieann - Great question! Every plan type has its own benefit levels and what it will cover. Without seeing your specific coverages, it would be difficult to answer that question. If you'll send us a private message with your member ID and contact information, we would be happy to research this for you and contact you directly to go over the specifics. --Cassie
  • Hi Cassie,
    Thank you for responding back as this is very inportant to me. I currently work for  in Pittsburgh in which I now have BCBS of NC . BCBS of NC does cover the surgery but I won't be having it until the end of April at which time I will be on  BCBS of TX. I will be working in Dallas after April. That is why I am concerned and do not want to loose that coverage. Please let me know what will be covered and what requirements need to be met to be prequalified for surgery. Thank you so much for the information.

    Thank you Bill - I'm asking our team to look into the benefits for that group and to contact you as soon as possible with some answers for you. For your security, we recommend that you edit your response to remove your email address and phone number. We've captured it on our end, and because this is a public forum we would hate for that information to get in the wrong hands. We'll be in touch!

  • Hi billieann -
    Our team has researched the questions you've had. Since your surgery wouldn't take place until 2015 and those benefits aren't loaded yet with your new group information, we wouldn't be able to see the coverage level for the surgery at this time. Our recommendation would be to contact the American Airlines benefits center and ask them directly until the benefits are loaded next year in our system.
