    Probably a stupid question, but I recently received my UPS healthcare info (this month is my one-year anniversary so I'm signing up for the first time), and throughout the documentation it mentions the Aetna and BCBS PPO's. Do I have a choice in which provider to use, or is it determined by UPS/region/local, etc.? From what I've read on here it seems that some areas use Aetna and others use BCBS, so I'm not quite sure if I actually have a choice or not.

    Soon we will all use teamcare so in a few months it likely won't matter.

    Your shop steward or local HR rep should be able to give you a basic answer as healthcare varies across the company.

    Isn't teamcare a BCBS ppo?

    This is the plan that we have in Upstate NY so if Teamcare is indeed BC/BS PPO then you will like the coverage.

    It is still worse than many of us currently have.

    No it is worse for some. That's not really debatable.
