Tips to Get More Out of Your Coverage

Your Coverage

When you enroll in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Service Benefit Plan, you get the same great benefits that many federal employees across the nation already depend on. That includes things like free preventive care, a network with over 1.7 million doctors and hospitals and over 55,000 retail pharmacies in the U.S. and more.

When you enroll, you also get a lot of tools, resources and incentives that make a big impact on your health and coverage. This can be anything from making it easier to track out-of-pocket costs to helping you save on care.

Follow this checklist to make sure you’re taking full advantage of your plan:
