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.

KFF 2022 Employer Health Benefits Survey

KFF 2022 Employer Health Benefits Survey

Nov 14, 2022, 3 Minute Read

Given today’s tight labor market and rising wages, employers are concerned about the cost of health premiums, especially since recent inflation suggests larger increases are imminent. And as disclosed in the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) survey, employers continue to be anxious about meeting the mental health needs of their employees and their dependents.

Conducted from February through July 2022, the KFF 2022 Employer Health Benefits Survey, of 2,188 randomly selected private and non-federal public firms of three or more workers, reveals that workers at small firms pay more in premiums and face higher deductibles than workers at large firms.

In 2022, the average annual premiums for employer-sponsored health insurance are $7,911 for single coverage and $22,463 for family coverage. In contrast to the lack of premium growth in 2022, workers’ wages increased 6.7% and inflation increased 8%.
