Did you know: BCBS Cost Estimator
Cost Estimator and Provider Finder tools available
Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) offers two new tools for healthcare plan participants: Cost Estimator and Provider Finder tools.
The Cost Estimator Tool provides healthcare plan participants the opportunity to become more educated consumers of healthcare. Previously it was almost impossible to price compare healthcare services, but now consumers can compare prices and costs for many medical procedures with this tool.
Estimating your cost and making an informed decision prior to the procedure can result in significant savings while achieving high quality medical services and in many situations a better outcome.
To use the tool go to BCBSIL Member Services (BAM) and register to access the tool and other BCBS services.
The Provider Finder Tool provides healthcare plan participants the ability to search for providers of healthcare services such as doctors, specialists and hospitals. Visit the Provider Finder search tool to locate providers and see if they are part of your plan network.
