  • Bariatric surgery

Blue Distinction Centers+ designations also recognize healthcare facilities delivering specialty care for complex and rare cancers.

Traveling expenses are covered

If you need to travel for a surgery, travel benefits are available to you and can cover your travel costs (like rental care and hotel stay) to a Center of Excellence for complex and rare cancer treatment if you live more than 100 miles from the nearest facility. This isn’t the only benefit you get when choosing one of these centers. You will also be more likely to receive a high level of care and a higher benefit, meaning you will pay less for services provided at these centers.

To find a Blue Distinction+ Center, visit bcidaho.com or call the number on the back of your medical plan ID card.
