CareFirst BlueChoice POS (OA)

PLEASE NOTE:  This plan is offered through the end of this year, December 31, 2013.

For 2014 plan information please see the Employee Open Enrollment site or the Retiree Open Enrollment site.

The POS plan provides in-network access to local providers in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. The plan also provides access to out of network providers both locally and nationwide.

  • You must choose a PCP who coordinates your care.
  • You may receive treatment from in-network providers without referral, or from out-of-network providers, but you will pay more for such care.
  • Routine obstetrical/gynecological care does not require referrals.
  • $20 copayment* applies for most office visits. 
  • Other in-network services are covered at 90% of the plan allowance. The remaining 10% is the coinsurance amount for which you are responsible.
  • Your maximum out-of-pocket expense for in-network services is $250 for an individual, or $500 for a family.  After you reach the out-of-pocket maximum, the plan pays 100 percent of eligible expenses, excluding copayments, for the rest of the year.
  • Inpatient and outpatient behavioral health care services are coordinated through Magellan.
  • Lower premiums than the CareFirst BluePreferred PPO plan.
  • Vision benefits are provided through United Healthcare Vision.
  • Prescription drug benefits are provided through Express Scripts, Inc.
