No matter which BCBSTX health plan you select, you’ll have many providers to choose from, such as your choice of an in-network OB-GYN. And with a large number of Illinois doctors and hospitals participating in our networks, chances are very good that your current health care providers are included.
Before committing to a plan check Provider Finder® to see if the doctor or OB-GYN you’d like to use is a part of the health insurance plan you’d like to buy.
Shop Plans and Products. All plans have similar benefits, and all include essential health benefits and preventive services for women. Where they differ is on how the costs of the benefits are applied.
Women’s Preventive Services Our health plans cover the following types of recommended screenings and preventive services for women with no out-of-pocket costs—as long as you visit a doctor in your health plan's provider network. Finding a doctor that provides these screenings and services should be no problem, since we have the largest network of doctors in the state.
You read that right! Manual and electric breast pumps are covered by your insurance when you use an in-network provider . When you become a member, call the number on the back of your member ID card for more details. A Customer Advocate will work through the details of which pumps are covered and how you can get your pump.
And if pregnancy isn’t for you right now, there are more than 20 different contraceptives that are covered by your health plan, including birth control pills, injections and patches, along with well-woman check-ups.
