BlueAllianceSM – Narrow network product launched
BCSBAZ recently announced the BlueAlliance benefit plan, a specially designed plan for people who will benefit from a smaller, more localized provider network focused on Maricopa County. The BlueAlliance Network is a new, more integrated network, separate from BCBSAZ’s larger PPO network.
Because of its unique design only BlueAlliance network providers will be considered in-network for this plan. Providers in BCBSAZ’s larger BCBSAZ PPO network that do not also have a separate participation agreement for BlueAlliance will be out-of-network for this benefit plan. BlueAlliance members may have significantly larger cost shares (copayments, deductibles and coinsurance) for out-of-network services.
When you see a BCBSAZ member, please remember to look for the BlueAlliance benefit plan name on the member’s ID card. The following information applies to the BlueAlliance product:

BlueAlliance is a benefit plan and a network tailored to a special segment of the Arizona insurance market, and it underscores BCBSAZ’s commitment to provide the best health insurance value to all Arizona citizens. We thank you for helping us meet that commitment by participating in our larger PPO provider network.
