About Blue Cross Blue Shield

Founded in Texas to make healthcare more affordable, BCBS has been around since 1929. It began as a partnership between hospitals and their patients. In the 1940s, Blue Cross merged with Blue Shield to grow their reach. By the early 2000s, more than 100 million members made up BCBS.

BCBS was also the only insurer able to process Medicare claims in 1966, helping over 5 million seniors become Medicare patients.

Today, Blue Cross Blue Shield continues to be a leading health insurance company, offering a range of insurance products and services to millions of people across the United States.

Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance Plan Options

BCBS, like most health insurance companies, offers coverage for substance abuse treatment . This can include inpatient and outpatient treatment, counseling, and medication-assisted treatment. BCBS has their own recognition award for patient-focused rehabs, called Blue Distinction™.

  • Copay-only plans will guarantee that your costs after paying your deductible are only copays, with primary care physician visits and generic drugs covered before you hit your deductible.
  • High-deductible plans offer preventative care services before the deductible is met, and some coverage through a primary care physician before the deductible is met (with copay), and the option of a health savings account. To view your plan’s details, you can log into the member website.

Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicare and Medicaid

BCBS Medicare Advantage plans provide the same benefits as Original Medicare, but often with additional benefits, such as vision, hearing, and dental coverage. Blue Cross Blue Shield also offers Medigap (Medicare Supplement) plans, which can be used to help cover the costs not covered by Original Medicare.

Blue Cross Blue Shield and Medically-Assisted Treatment

Blue Cross Blue Shield Coverage for Residential Treatment
