One Plan. Two levels of Coverage.

Conemaugh Region Flex Blue gives your employees a choice between providers that participate at two benefit levels – Enhanced Value and Standard Value – a powerful way to control costs without sacrificing quality.

Enhanced Value = Enhanced Savings

Standard Value

Offers additional network provider options. Out-of-pocket costs are generally higher than at the Enhanced Value level of benefits

Out-of-Network+ (PPO plans only)

Members often pay the most out-of-pocket when they use out-of-network providers for non-emergency care.

High-Quality Care Close to Home

Conemaugh Region Flex Blue offers convenient, in-network access for members living and working in Somerset, Cambria, and Blair counties. 

Enhanced Value Hospitals and Standard Value Hospitals
