Important Updates for CKHS Medical Plan Participants - CHOP and Nemours Physicians are Now Tier 1 CKHS Medical Plan Providers

Sent on behalf of Susan Winkles, Employee Benefit Services

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Nemours pediatricians and pediatric specialists are now Tier 1 providers under all five CKHS medical plans – the EPO (regardless of where you live), Limited PPO, Standard PPO, Premier PPO and Value Plan. You may now use CHOP or Nemours physicians in addition to CKHS pediatricians for all of your children’s care - well-baby visits, sick appointments, physicals, and more. You can find the Tier 1 CKHS, CHOP or Nemours physician directory by accessing one of the following:

• Reference Center at www.benefitsolver.com


• Keenan TPA at 877-853-3626

All facility care provided at CHOP/Nemours hospitals, outpatient sites, urgent cares and diagnostic testing (i.e. lab and x-ray) continue to be covered at the Tier 2 benefit level.

If your child needs surgery, has an ongoing chronic condition, or requires an inpatient stay at CHOP or Nemours, please continue to partner with the Blue Cross Health Advocate by calling 877-455-6777.
