Policy Coverage for Substance Abuse with BlueCross BlueShield Insurance
Depending on your location, BlueCross BlueShield offers different plans. Common plans are the bronze, silver, gold or platinum level. The Bronze Plan is the lowest in coverage, along with the lowest monthly premium and highest deductibles. The higher-level plans such as the Platinum or Gold have a higher cost and provide more comprehensive coverage with lower deductibles.
If the policy is a Federal Employee Program policy, it usually consists of two plan options, either the basic option or the standard option. The basic Federal employee plan option requires individuals to use providers within a preferred network, while the standard plan allows its members to choose between preferred and non-preferred providers (also known as PPO).
Policyholders may be responsible for the difference in cost between the plan allowance and the actual billed amount by the provider if an out-of-network or non-preferred provider was used.
