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.

LinkedIn Social Selling Tips: Finding Your Ideal Clients

LinkedIn Social Selling Tips: Finding Your Ideal Clients

Mar 13, 2023, 3 Minute Read

As the only social platform focused on business and professional networking, LinkedIn (660,000 active users) is one of the top places to reach decision makers, influencers, and practitioners. In fact, B2B blogs and websites receive most of their social media traffic from LinkedIn, according to a 2022 LinkedIn study. 43% attribute their sales to LinkedIn, Facebook followed at 24%, and Twitter at 20%.

If your prospects are active on LinkedIn, chances are they’re talking about the issues you can solve. So, if you can find them, reaching out becomes easier because you know they are more likely to be open to your solutions.

To start building an organic audience that will later convert to clients, follow the tips below.

Find Prospects by Renting Your Competitor’s LinkedIn Audience

  1. In the Search field, search for your target persona. Example: “CEO.” Make sure the left green tab says “People.”
