For example, in Pennsylvania alone, Blue Cross Blue Shield coverage is provided through four Blue Cross and Blue Shield Companies including:
- Capital BlueCross

Some BCBS insurance policies cover inpatient treatment, residential treatment, partial hospitalization programs, and intensive outpatient programs.
