Special Care

Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania and Highmark Blue Shield

Special Care coverage ended on June 30, 2014. This means if you haven’t already done so, you need to choose a new health insurance plan. Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania has many new plans for you to choose from. All of our new Affordable Care Act (ACA) Metal plans offer richer benefits than you had under Special Care— including more prescription drug coverage, unlimited doctor visits and hospital care. Best of all, you may qualify for federal tax credits and cost-share subsides, which could make your new health insurance plan cost less than you paid for Special Care.

To enroll in a new plan, call us at 1.888.345.8051, stop by one of our retail stores or visit BlueCrossNEPAStore.com.
