Doctors and Hospitals
We remain hopeful an agreement with CHI will be reached by the August 31 deadline. BCBSNE members do not need to take any action at this time. In-network coverage for all CHI doctors or facilities remains in effect, and there is no need to switch providers during the negotiation period.
For those members wishing to explore available options during this time, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska maintains a comprehensive network of doctors, dentists and hospitals across the state.
Use the links below to view lists of affected and non-affected providers and check back often as these lists will be updated regularly. These lists are searchable. Once the list is open, click CTRL-F and enter the name of the provider you would like to search for.If you are a member of a Blues plan other than Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska, call the member services number on your identification card for the most accurate, up-to-date information.
If you are a Federal Employee Program (FEP) member, refer to www.fepblue.org or call the member services number on your identification card for the most accurate, up-to-date information.
Again, BCBSNE members do not need to make a change of doctor or hospital during the negotiation period. But if you want to search for alternate providers, you can find that information at www.mynebraskablue.com.
