Networks for Small Group Plans

Preferred-Care Blue®

The freedom of choice. Preferred-Care Blue® gives Blue KC members the largest selection of providers within our 32-county service area. When your employees want more doctors, more hospitals, and more health care choices, our Preferred-Care Blue network will more than meet their expectations. Employees can also travel with confidence because BlueCard® gives them access to benefits while on the go.

Blue Select

The model of affordability. BlueSelect offers a smaller, but still quality, hospital network than Preferred-Care, so it comes with a smaller price tag. This network works best for employees living in the 5-county Kansas City metro area. (Clay, Jackson and Platte counties in Missouri. Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas.) Those outside the metropolitan Kansas City area are eligible to enroll, but must visit a BlueSelect hospital or provider for benefits to be paid at the in-network level. Outside the 32-county Blue KC service area, BlueSelect members have access to the BlueCard network.


It travels well. With the BlueCard® program, Blue KC plan members can take their healthcare benefits with them across the country and around the world. Members can access doctors and hospitals almost everywhere. And outside the U.S., they can access doctors and hospitals in nearly 200 countries and territories through the Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core.

Value Added Services for Small Group Plans

With added perks like personalized health and wellness programs, member discounts and online services, Blue KC members can live even more fearless.
