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 – Trio HMO and Tandem PPO Cost-Reducing Options and Bonus

Aug 25, 2020, < 1 Minute Read

To help employers who may be experiencing financial difficulties due to COVID-19, Blue Shield is offering the option of a one-time off-anniversary plan downgrade through September 30, 2020. Buy-down plans may be selected from within the current plan type: PPO to PPO or HMO to HMO.

Consider switching your groups to Blue Shield’s lower cost Trio HMO and Tandem PPO plans without reducing their employees’ coverage.

With high-value coverage and even more features than Blue Shield’s full network plans – Trio and Tandem plans come with noticeably lower premiums. While the networks are somewhat smaller, some employees may already be seeing doctors in the Trio and Tandem networks and may be able to keep their doctors and have lower out-of-pocket costs.

Earn up to $100 per enrolled member in Trio HMO and Tandem PPO plans, effective dates September 1, 2020, through January 1, 2021.
