No matter which Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) health plan you select, you’ll have many providers to choose from — including a trusted network of OB-GYN physicians. With a large number of Illinois doctors and hospitals in our networks, chances are very good that your current health care providers are part of our network.
Before choosing a plan, check Provider Finder® to see if the doctor or OB-GYN you’d like to use is a part of the health insurance plan you’d like to buy.
To find a plan that’s right for you, shop Plans and Products. All plans have similar benefits, and all include essential health benefits and preventive services for women. They differ in the way costs of benefits are applied.
Women’s Preventive Services Our health plans cover the following recommended screenings and preventive services for women with no out-of-pocket costs — as long as you visit a doctor in your health plan's provider network. Finding a doctor that provides these screenings and services should be no problem, since BCBSIL has the largest network of doctors in the state.
As you can see, so much is covered by your health insurance plan when you use an in-network provider — even manual and electric breast pumps. When you become a member, call the number on the back of your member ID card for more details. A Customer Advocate will work through the details about which pumps are covered and how you can get your pump.
And if pregnancy isn’t for you right now, more than 20 different contraceptives are covered by your health plan, including birth control pills, injections, patches and well-woman check-ups. Prescription coverage for contraceptives may vary according to the terms and conditions of the plan and prescription drug list.
See the full women’s preventive contraceptive list.
