Networks for Small Group Plans
Blue KC understands the importance of access to high-quality healthcare services. Our provider contracting team ensures our networks deliver by negotiating rates that help keep care affordable, while also ensuring each provider meets Blue KC’s standards for high-quality care.
Preferred–Care Blue (PPO) offers your employees the largest selection of providers within the Blue KC 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.
The BlueSelect Plus network is specially designed for sustainable savings and easy access to quality healthcare in and around the Kansas City metro area. BlueSelect Plus offers affordability by using a strong hospital and provider network of more than 4,100 providers and 16 hospitals. When traveling outside the 32 county Blue KC service area, BlueSelect Plus members are covered under the BlueCard PPO network. To choose a BlueSelect Plus plan, companies must be headquartered in the 12-county region listed below, and members must:
Live in one of these 12 counties:
Missouri: Clay, Jackson, Platte, Cass, Clinton, DeKalb, Johnson, Lafayette, Ray, Caldwell
Kansas: Johnson and Wyandotte
Seek Care from any of the 4,100+ providers and 16 hospitals primarily located in these seven counties:
Missouri: Clay, Jackson, Platte, Clinton, Johnson
Kansas: Johnson, Wyandotte
BlueSelect Plus also includes specialty hospitals Ascentist Healthcare, Kansas City Orthopedic Institute and over 50 Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASC). ASCs are modern care facilities focused on providing same-day surgical care, including diagnostic and preventive procedures, and may be more cost effective. To learn more about all providers in the BlueSelect Plus network visit MyBlueKC.com or call the customer service number on your member ID card.
Spira Care + BlueSelect Plus
Spira Care is a combined care and insurance offering developed by Blue KC. Spira Care members enjoy access to comprehensive, personal primary care at convenient Care Centers, as well as access to all the benefits of the BlueSelect Plus network in and around the Kansas City metro area.
Spira Care is built on an Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO) insurance model. Members must receive all care from in network providers (12 county BlueSelect Plus network or BlueCard network outside the 32 county service area) except for emergency services. Non emergency services received out of network are not covered.
Most Blue KC plans allow you to take your healthcare benefits with you – across the country and around the world – with the BlueCard program. BlueCard gives you access to doctors and hospitals almost everywhere. Outside of the U.S., you have access to doctors and hospitals in nearly 200 countries and territories through the BlueCard Worldwide® program.
