Update on New BCBSVT Insurance Cards

BCBSVT is in the process of sending out new subscriber cards to everyone enrolled in the plan.

For those enrolled in the SelectCare plan, an error occurred which caused the old copay information to be printed on the card. This is being corrected and if you have received a card indicating a copay of $20 office visit/$50 ER visit, you can expect to receive a corrected card by the end of January with the correct copays of $25 office visit/$75 ER visit.

Until you receive the corrected card, you can continue to use your older card, or the more recent card with the incorrect copay information and they will process correctly. Please be aware that the increased copays are in effect as of 1/1/19.

If you are a TotalChoice subscriber and have not yet received a card, you can use your existing card until it arrives.
