Final edition of Inside IPP

For many years, we have published Inside IPP to increase awareness of and satisfaction with the BlueCard Program.

Starting in 2016, we will communicate all BlueCard news and information in the BlueCard section of Partners in Health UpdateSM. Therefore, the Fall 2015 edition of Inside IPP is the final edition of this publication.

BlueCard resources

We have added a new BlueCard-specific page on our Provider News Center. On this page, an archive of all articles published in the BlueCard section of Partners in Health Update will be available. Additionally, you will find other resources on this page, including the Coordination of Benefits Questionnaire for out-of-area members and the Quick Guide to Blue Member ID Cards.
