BLUECHOICE AND PHYSICIANS EYECARE PLAN HAVE EXCITING CHANGES FOR 2020
Effective January 1st, 2020 BlueChoice Blue Option members will have Physicians Eyecare Plan (PEP) for their routine vision coverage. This vision coverage replaces Blue Option members’ existing BlueChoice vision plan administered by Physicians Eyecare Network (PEN).
This change is for BlueChoice Blue Option members only.
BlueChoice members who have routine vision coverage that is NOT the Blue Option product will continue to have Physicians Eyecare Network (PEN) vision.
How will this affect you as a provider when checking eligibility and filing claims?
- If a BlueChoice member has the Blue Option ID card (example shown below), you will use the Physicians Eyecare Plan website (http://pen-net.net/ and click on the PEP Vision link) to check benefits, eligibility and file claims.
- BlueChoice Blue Option members will NOT receive a separate PEP ID card for their vision. Providers will use the Blue Option Member ID on the member’s BlueChoice insurance card (numbers only) to pull up the member’s eligibility and to file claims.
Please distribute this information to the appropriate departments in your practice to make them aware of these changes. You are welcome to contact us at 1-800-368-9609 with any questions.
