Want access to your choice of doctors? You can’t go wrong with any of these medical plans, which are available to all U.S. employees. Check out the highlights below to find the plan that makes the most sense for you.

With all the Blue Shield plans, you can choose any doctor or facility, but you’ll pay less when you use in-network providers. The plans all pay 100% of in-network preventive care services, with no copay or deductible.

See your cost for each plan. For more details, refer to the BSC plan documents.
