This is what we do if we need treatment while traveling abroad so I think it should work domestically.
I have a friend who retired from the same company as myself and has the same BCBS PPO. Last year while in Vienna his wife took ill and needed to go see a doctor who prescribed some pills. They paid for the doctor visit and the prescription, filed a claim when they got back and to his pleasant surprise got fully reimbursed.
