Transportation Services

With your Blue Cross Community Health PlansSM coverage, you may qualify for transportation services. This includes rides to and from your doctor's office or a health care facility. Trips must be medically necessary.

What services are covered?

The plan offers rides free of charge when you have no other way to get to:

  • A doctor's appointment
  • An appointment with another health care provider
  • A pharmacy after a provider visit

What services are not covered?

You can only use this service for medical needs. The plan does not cover rides:

  • For non-medical needs (examples: to go shopping or to visit a friend)
  • To go to a provider who is outside our provider network (without special authorization from BCBSIL)

If you need a ride to the doctor, call Member Services at 1-877-860-2837 (TTY/TDD 711) at least three days before your appointment. We are available 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week. The call is free.

Call 911 if you need emergency transport. (You do not need an OK from BCBSIL in the event of an emergency.)
