Seeking Care

The CareFirst BlueChoice Advantage plan allows members the flexibility to choose a health care provider when and where treatment is needed. When care is received inside the CareFirst service area members will experience the lowest out of pocket costs when they visit a BlueChoice provider. Members still have the option to access a BlueCard PPO doctor, but will be subject to higher out of pocket expenses.

Members receiving care outside the CareFirst Service area will experience the lowest out of pocket costs by accessing a national BlueCard PPO provider. Members will still have the option to opt-out of this network at a higher out of pocket expense.

Finding a Doctor

The BlueChoice network is a local network of providers. To locate a medical provider, go to CareFirst’s online directory and look for providers in the “BlueChoice Advantage” network. You may also use this online directory to search for BlueCard PPO providers outside of the local area. Follow the instructions above, then click on the link for providers outside the Metro area. 

Prescription Drug Plan

Participants in the CareFirst POS plan are enrolled in a prescription drug plan insured by CVS Caremark. You will receive two ID cards – one for medical services from CareFirst and one for prescription drug coverage from CVS Caremark. You can fill prescriptions at the more than 68,000 network pharmacies including independent and chain locations, or at a convenient CVS retail locations.

Find a participating network pharmacy using the CVS Caremark Pharmacy Locator. Participating pharmacies include CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Safeway, Giant, Harris Teeter and many more.
