Blue High Performance Network name changing for 2022
In New York, Empire BlueCross BlueShield (“Empire”) is offering large and small group employers plans with access to the BlueHPN, with the existing Connection network as the New York HPN entry.
Member ID cards and other plan material feature one small change for 2022: BlueHPN is now a single word rather than two.
As was true in 2021, in 2022 you may see patients accessing the BlueHPN/Connection network through EPO plans or HSA plans with an EPO network. Under these plans, out of network benefits are limited to emergency or urgent care. Be sure to continue to verify patient eligibility and benefits.
