Having a health care procedure? You could earn cash with Member Rewards*

Did you know you can shop and compare costs for over 1,600 health care procedures online using our Provider Finder® tool? Just like shopping for new tires for your car or a new computer, doing a little comparison shopping can really pay off. 

The price of health care services can differ by hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars based on where you get them. And higher cost does not always mean better quality. By choosing a cost-effective option for your care, not only can you save money on your out-of-pocket costs, but you may earn a cash Member Reward.

How Does Member Rewards Work?

There are no forms to fill out – it’s easy. Just follow these steps when a doctor suggests a medical procedure or service:

  1. Log into Blue Access for Members at BCBSNM.com
  2. Click the Doctors and Hospitals tab – then Find a Doctor or Hospital. Do your search to compare your choices and select a reward eligible location. 
  3. Have the procedure or service at the reward eligible location you chose.

Once the claim is paid, you will receive a check in the mail.

*To see if you have the Member Rewards program, call the number on the back of your BCBSNM member ID card.  Even if you don’t have Member Rewards – you can still cut your out-of-pocket costs by choosing a lower cost provider. 

The Member Rewards program is provided by Sapphire Digital, an independent company. Incentives available for select procedures only. Amounts you receive through Member Rewards may be taxable. BCBSNM does not provide tax advice, so please contact your HR or tax advisor for more information. Rewards may be delivered by check or an alternative form of payment.
