Annual Enrollment for 2023 Benefits is October 26 – November 15, 2022


PPO Medical Plan

The PPO Medical Plan covers in-network preventive care, office visits and hospital emergency room care with no deductible; you pay only a flat-dollar copay for these services—and you pay nothing for in-network preventive care. For most other in-network services, you pay 20% after meeting your annual deductible.

In-Network vs. Out-of-Network Care

In-network providers have negotiated service rates with BCBS. An out-of-network provider may charge more than BCBS is willing to pay. Because of this, the out-of-network deductible is higher than the in-network deductible. Before receiving treatment, check with BCBS to ensure a doctor, lab, hospital, specialist or other provider is in-network:

  • Clean Air & Powertrain team members: Go to BCBSAL
  • Motorparts & Performance Solutions team members: Go to BCBSIL

If you’re not sure which division you’re aligned with contact your local HR team.
