January 2012 Update
We're excited to offer you a new way to grow and retain your book of business. Simply Shield -- our redesigned small group portfolio – offers your clients a simple approach to healthcare coverage.

To make way for our new Simply Shield portfolio, we are streamlining our plan offerings by withdrawing many of our plans from the previous portfolio. To learn more about renewals and withdrawals, your clients' next steps, and how you can assist them, please visit our Renewal and Withdrawal Center.

Please note: If your client currently offers one of Blue Shield's plan packages – PlanSelectSM, Suite Deal, or Dual Choice – they may have some plans without enrollees, and those plans may no longer be available at their next renewal. Only those medical plans included in the new Simply Shield portfolio will be available for enrollment at their next renewal date.

Learn more about the new Simple Savings HMO plans. If you have questions, please contact your Blue Shield account manager.
Added Advantage POS Plan
Our point-of-service (POS) plan offers the convenience and predictable out-of-pocket costs of our HMO, along with access to our extensive PPO network and non-plan providers.
 
With Added Advantage POS,SM your clients and their employees have the option to visit either their HMO Personal Physician or a PPO or non-PPO provider each time they access care. Costs depend on which type of provider they choose:
 
  • Costs are lower when members use their HMO Personal Physician rather than PPO or non-plan providers.
  • Members pay less to see a PPO provider than they pay to see a non-plan provider.
  • For covered services from a non-plan provider, members pay the plan's calendar-year deductible, the applicable copayment plus any charges that exceed Blue Shield's allowable amount.
Note: Access+ SpecialistSM and Access+ Satisfaction®  do not apply to the Added Advantage POS Plan.
