BCBSIL has expanded telehealth services for PPO and HMO members now through May 31, 2020.
- For PPO members, this is for medically necessary services with an in-network PPO provider who offer telehealth services. If a PPO member sees an in-network provider who offers telehealth services, those telehealth services will now be covered as a regular office visit (which for Cook County PPO members is a $25.00 copay, then covered at 90%).
- For HMO members, this is for medically necessary services from providers in their medical group who offers telehealth services. If an HMO member sees a provider within their medical group who offers telehealth services, those telehealth services will now be covered as a regular office visit (which for Cook County HMO members is a $15.00 copay, then covered at 100%). Members should contact their provider to see if a telehealth visit can be offered.
Any member experiencing illness should contact their physician. COVID-19 testing is available as a covered benefit to HMO and PPO plan members.
