The BlueChoice HMO is a managed health care plan consisting of a network of physicians and other medical providers. If you enroll in the BlueChoice HMO, all of your health care must be coordinated and approved by your primary care physician and received in-network.
Note: The BlueChoice HMO plan was phased out as of January 2023 for non-bargained employees. It will continue to be available to LIUNA bargaining unit employees.
Some of the features of the BlueChoice HMO Plan for bargaining unit members are outlined below. Additional details are available in the 2023 LIUNA BU Medical Plan Coverage Comparison Chart.
