Community Blue Flex


Same top doctors and hospitals; now, more ways to control costs

Community Blue Flex engages members because it offers two levels of in-network benefits. This way, members have a choice every time they select a provider and they can control their costs.


Regardless of which Community Blue product members have, they have access to the high-quality Community Blue network. This includes the Allegheny Health Network, as well as other high-quality community and specialty hospitals across the region and the country, plus all Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core® hospitals throughout the United States.

2 Levels of In-Network Benefits:

Level One: $

Enchanced Value Level of Benefits

The best value, this covers the care you need. You pay the least with this level.

Level Two: $$

Standard Value Level of Benefits

You have the same quality of care, but choices of providers. You pay slightly more at this level.

Level Three: $$$

Out-of-Network Level of Benefits

If you use out-of-network providers, you will pay the most.

All Community Blue plans give members:

More than 50 community and specialty hospitals and more than 10,400 doctors in 29 counties in Western Pennsylvania.

Exceptional provider choices, close-to-home – including cancer care, rehabilitation services, behavioral health, emergency care, women’s health and children’s care.

Freedom and flexibility. Plan members don’t require a referral to schedule an appointment with a specialist. 

Coverage for preventive care services, like physical exams, health screenings and vaccines. For everyone, at every stage of life, preventive care is a critical part of staying healthy.
