Information on coverage details is available from AskBlueInsurance.com, as of 2016. This website covers questions regarding what benefits members receive, the costs involved and how to choose the right coverage plan. People who are already members with Blue Cross Blue Shield can log in to their individual accounts via BCBS.com to view plan information.
AskBlue is a website that helps new and potential customers shop for insurance plans while answering questions about coverage details. In order to start this process, users must fill in personal information such as ZIP code, age and gender. A ZIP code is necessary because each state has different coverage options and costs for health insurance, and some areas are not eligible for coverage through Blue Cross Blue Shield. After filling in this information, the customer must read information that explains the essential health benefits included in plans for the specific area. After the user reads this information, he can read information regarding premium and out-of-pocket costs such as co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance.
To log in as members at BCBS.com, users start by clicking the Already A Member? tab on the BCBS home page. Typing in the first three letters of the identification number on the member ID card allows a member to access the specific BCBS company associated with the account.
