Individual and Family Health Plans

2016 Health Plans

2016 Product Family

Open enrollment for 2016 health coverage is closed. However, you can still apply for health coverage during a Special Enrollment Period if you have certain changes in your life – known as qualifying life events – including loss of coverage (due to loss of employer-sponsored coverage, death of a spouse, divorce, or plan being discontinued), marriage, the birth or adoption of a baby, or a recent move into a new coverage area.

Preferred–Care Blue

Preferred–Care Blue® offers Blue KC members the largest selection of providers within our 32-county service area. Outside of our 32-county service area, this network allows you to take your healthcare benefits with you-across the country with the BlueCard program. BlueCard gives you access to doctors and hospitals almost everywhere.


A more limited provider network, BlueSelect is available only to residents of the 5-county Kansas City metropolitan area, which includes Clay, Jackson and Platte counties in Missouri, and Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas. BlueSelect network also includes access to the national BlueCard network outside of our 32-county service area.

BlueSelect offers greater affordability by using a smaller hospital network than Preferred-Care Blue.

BlueSelect for Basic Individual

BlueSelect for Basic Individual is the same 5-county Kansas City metropolitan area network as BlueSelect. However, this network does not include any participating provider network outside of the Kansas City metropolitan area.

This network offers greater affordability by using a smaller hospital network limited to the Kansas City metropolitan area.
