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.

San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance – 2022 Updates and Reminders

Oct 18, 2021, < 1 Minute Read

Now is a good time to update your clients about their 2022 obligations under the San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance (HCSO). The HCSO applies to employers with San Francisco based employees, not just employers based in San Francisco. The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted many employees to change where they live. Employers may want to double-check their HCSO obligations.

Under the HCSO, employers must spend a minimum amount on health care for their San Francisco employees. As of January 1, 2022, the rates are as follows:

Employer reporting under the HCSO is required for the calendar year 2021. (Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, employer HCSO annual reporting requirements were waived for calendar years 2019 and 2020. Employers were still required to comply with all other aspects of the HCSO).

Learn more about employer obligations under the HCSO.
