My understanding is that visits outside HUHS are fairly limited.  HUHS is set up
to be your primary care provider--you can see a specialist outside HUHS but not
more than a few times, since they already have pediatrics, dermatology, etc. 
Anything you do with BCBS is "extra."  (like hospitalization)

What you describe does sound possible, though!  but I didn't do that so cannot
advise.  You do have to keep a primary care doc at HUHS.  Some of them also
practice elsewhere, though! so it *might* actually be possible to see the same
person in a different place.  (I think this is not the case with pediatrics,
though?)

altogether...
