Blue Medicare HMO Medical Only (HMO) is a Local HMO *. With a health maintenance organization (HMO) you will be required to receive most of your health care from an in-network provider. Health maintenance organizations require that you select a primary care physician (PCP). Your PCP will serve as your personal doctor to provide all of your basic healthcare services. If you need special care for a physician specialist, your primary care physician will make the arrangements and tell you where you can go in the network. You will need your PCPs okay, called a referral. Without getting a referral or services received from out-of-network providers are not typically covered by the plan.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina works with Medicare to give you significant coverage beyond Part A and Part B benefits. If you decide to sign up for Blue Medicare HMO Medical Only (HMO) you still retain Original Medicare. But you will get additional Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and not Original Medicare. With Medicare Advantage your always covered for urgently needed and emergency care and you receive all of the benefits of Original Medicare from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina except hospice care. Original Medicare still provides you with hospice care even if you sign up for a Medicare Advantage Plan.
