How plan types work within BlueSelect Plus 

The plan type(s) your organization offers drives the access and level of coverage your employees receive.

  • EPO: EPOs have in-network coverage when using BlueSelect Plus but no out-of-network coverage EXCEPT for emergency services.  
  • PPO: PPOs have some out-of-network coverage but higher out-of-pocket costs will apply.  

If you have questions about BlueSelect Plus as it applies to your health plan, please contact your Blue KC representative.
