Blue Shield - New Virtual Blue Plans

The Virtual Blue plans give members (small and large groups) the choice of virtual or in-person care. Virtual care includes $0 unlimited visits to primary care, behavioral health and specialty care through a new partnership with AccoladeCare. In-person care is available through the Tandem PPO network in California and via BlueCard when outside of the state.

The two Virtual Blue small group plans available in PRISM are the Virtual Blue Gold Tandem PPO 1500/45 and Virtual Blue Bronze Tandem PPO 7500/75. These can be identified by ‘Virtual Blue’ in the plan name.

When using the PRISM filter options for Narrow or Broad networks, select ‘All’ networks instead of ‘Broad’ only networks to generate plans for Blue Shield’s Virtual Blue, Trio HMO, and Tandem PPO plans.

Blue Shield Dental – The Value of Network Strength

May 21, 2021, 3 Minute Read

An important factor to consider when recommending dental coverage options to a client is network strength. A large network minimizes disruption of care and increases member satisfaction. It also maximizes the value of your clients’ plans by giving members access to in-network provider negotiated rates, resulting in significant savings.

With Blue Shield, your clients get access to one of the largest dental HMO and PPO networks in California and nationwide. What’s more, small groups that bundle medical and dental coverage get a 10% discount off of their dental premiums, while large groups (101-1,000 employees) receive a 2% discount off of Blue Shield medical rates. Plus Blue Shield Dental plans now come with a two-year rate guarantee.
