What if my doctor is not in the Blue Cross Blue Shield Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) network?
To see if your doctor belongs to the network, or to review the network providers available in your area, visit www.bcbsil.com. Note: In California BCBS are separate companies and each have their own PPO network of doctors. When executing physician/hospital searches, look under the Blue Shield of CA network and NOT the Blue Cross of CA network. Please refer to the Benefit Links section on the benefits website for further information. If your doctor is not in the BCBS PPO network, you can contact BCBS to find out how to get your doctor added to the network.
