Preferred-Care Blue Exclusive Provider Option (EPO)


Group #14092000

The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City Preferred-Care Blue EPO medical option provides convenient, managed health care.

Members who select the EPO must receive all care from in-network providers, except for emergency care. Services received out-of-network, other than for emergency care, will not be covered. Out-of-area coverage is available through the national Blue Card PPO/EPO network.

You can enjoy a wide range of benefits and have a choice of physicians and facilities from a number of locations throughout the Kansas City metro area. Many services are covered at 100 percent after a $35 or $70 copayment.

This plan has no deductible; although it does have a calendar year, out-of-pocket maximum of $6,350 per individual and $12,700 for family.

You can use the college's Health Benefit Plan Summaries – PDF to learn more about the EPO and compare the other medical options available to you.
