"Just because we show you doctors doesn't mean they are in your network"
Yes, because just what you should want your members to do in the event of possibly an emergency is to also have to put on their registrar hat and asks billing questions before seeking needed medical care. You are the plan, you know your member's network, why can't your tools filter info as needed to the benefit of your member? We have a national push to reduce high cost medical visits and yet the brunt of that responsibility is somehow shifted to the member? Let your members focus on getting and staying well, and help them do that by using your revenue to remove barriers to care.
Zero stars. The app warns you that the "finder" may show providers outside of your coverage plan. Completely inexcusable when you can search within coverage on their website. You need urgent care? Yeah, this app can't be sure that place will be covered by BCBS.
You're better off calling the nurse's line and having them help you out. Those nurses are awesome.
Twilight Zone App
I will be traveling in retirement and was advised by BCBS rep to get this app and wherever I go it will let me know who the participating providers are in that area. To test it I tried my area where my doctor is 2 miles from me. The app says there are 0 providers within 25 miles of me. This was helpful. -0- stars
