Federal Employee Program® (FEP®) Introduces FEP Blue Focus

Posted November 16, 2018

Starting Jan. 1, 2019, you may begin seeing Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) FEP members with FEP Blue Focus, a new benefit plan consistent with our commitment to expand access and make health care more affordable. We will also continue to offer FEP members our Standard Option and Basic Option products.

Some of the features of FEP Blue Focus include:

  • The first 10 office visits of the year to in-network doctors for only $10
  • No more than a $5 copay for preferred generic drugs
  • No copay for the first two telehealth visits, $10 copay for each additional visit
  • No copay or coinsurance for emergency room (ER) visits for accidental injuries if the visits are within 72 hours of the injury

BCBSIL is proud of our long history of serving federal employees, retirees and their families with products that deliver high quality, comprehensive coverage. We appreciate your continued partnership in serving our FEP members.

For more information, refer to the FEP website. If you have any questions regarding this benefit, call FEP Customer Service at 800-972-8382.

Benefits will be determined once a claim is received and will be based upon, among other things, the member’s eligibility and the terms of the member’s certificate of coverage applicable on the date services were rendered.
