Boeing to Utilize CAP Network

We are pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2010; Boeing will once again utilize the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas network exclusively for their members in Kansas.

In November, Regence Blue Shield will send a letter to members residing in Kansas advising them of this exclusive network arrangement.

Please note that Boeing members may present different versions of their ID card.  For example, Boeing members that live in the Regence service area will have an ID card which has the shield and the word 'Regence' on the header.  If they live outside the Regence service area, their card will have the shield and the word 'BlueShield''.  However, existing members may also present the old version of the card with a cross and shield and the words BlueCross BlueShield on the header.  That is the only difference on the front of the ID card, besides the alpha prefix and group numbers, which can differ from card to card.  As long as the alpha begins with a 'BC' it would be a Boeing Regence BlueShield member.  

If you have any questions, please contact your provider consultant.
