BlueSelect Plus Network

North Kansas City Hospital understands how important affordable healthcare coverage is to you and your family. In an effort to give you the right care at a competitive price, North Kansas City Hospital will continue to utilize the BlueSelect Plus network in 2020. The BlueSelect Plus network is a narrow, high performance network that provides better discounts with the same quality standards. This capitalizes on the savings that members who live in the metropolitan Kansas City Area receive.

To receive in-network coverage, you must seek care from a BlueSelect Plus participating provider. These participating providers are in Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas and Clay, Jackson and Platte counties in Missouri. The following hospitals are considered in-network:

  • Advent Health Shawnee Mission
  • Children’s Mercy (Hospital Hill and South)
  • Liberty Hospital
  • North Kansas City Hospital
  • Olathe Medical Center
  • The University of Kansas Health System
  • Truman Medical Center (Hospital Hill and Lakewood)

If you choose to visit a provider outside of this network area, you will receive out-of-network benefits. In the case of emergency, you are covered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s BlueCard PPO coverage, giving you in-network access.
