There are different plans provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield within each state.  They are listed out as bronze, silver, gold, and platinum plans.  Bronze will have the lowest rates and the highest deductibles.  Platinum has the highest rates but with more comprehensive coverage and lower deductibles.  The basic options within the plan require members to use preferred providers.  The standard options allow members to choose between preferred and non-preferred provider organization providers.  What your Blue Cross Blue Shield covers will come down to the type of plan you have.
