ECP Plan: Base Plan for Non-Medicare Members in 2019

Beginning January 1, 2019, the Enhanced Care PPO (ECP) plan will be the nationwide health plan available to all non-Medicare Trust members. The plan will provide unlimited Primary Care Physician (PCP) and Specialist Physician office visits, as well as other helpful programs.

More Benefits

Offered through Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), this plan offers more benefits while keeping the same great PPO network of doctors and hospitals. 

In addition to unlimited access to PCP and specialist physician office visits at a flat dollar copay, this plan will feature personalized, convenient resources to assist you in navigating the health care system. You will have access to a personal, dedicated health guide who can help you find hospitals and doctors, answer questions about what’s covered under the plan, assist you with any provider billing questions, as well as connect you to a supporting team of clinical staff, care managers, and new specialized programs.

You Have Choice

Your PCP serves as your healthcare “home” but sometimes you need more specialized care and the ECP plan offers you that flexibility. If specialist coverage is new to you or if you’re not sure when to see a specialist, talk to your doctor. You and your PCP may decide a health issue or symptom would benefit from more expert care and your PCP can direct you to see a physician who specializes in the related practices.

Additionally, new with this plan, you have access to a 24-hour nurse line. Over the phone from a registered nurse, you can get fast medical advice from the comfort of your home or on the go. This free service can help guide you on where to go when you need care. Learn more about these benefits in your health plan materials.
