Health Care Service Corporation Key Developments

Health Care Service Corporation Announces Several Enhancements to its Blue Directions Private Exchange Solution for Large Employers

Health Care Service Corporation announced several enhancements to its Blue Directions private exchange solution for large employers, available now for the upcoming 2016 benefit plan year. The solution's enhanced features include a new 'Pick-a-Plan' option that lets employers build a plan package from a comprehensive portfolio of designs and transparency tools to help consumers better understand their health care options and compare costs. HCSC's Blue Directions solution brings many of the same features of online shopping to the selection of employer-sponsored benefits. This convenient, user-friendly platform helps employers easily select benefit plans, manage enrollment, anticipate expenditures and customize contribution strategies. Based on a defined contribution strategy, Blue Directions allows employers to commit a flat-dollar amount of money to each employee for coverage. The employee can then use this amount toward the purchase of benefits unique to their needs. In addition to start-to-finish enrollment support, the new Blue Directions features include: Pick-a-Plan: For 2016, employers can build their own plan package from a comprehensive portfolio of broad and narrow PPOs, High Deductible Health Plans as well as HMOs and EPOs where they are available. Employees can compare these plans side-by-side and filter them by network, deductible and premium to find a plan that fits their unique needs. Employees will see exactly how much their employer will contribute and what their out-of-pocket maximums will be; Benefits Value Advisor (BVA): Specially trained customer service advocates who use proprietary tools to provide members assistance in understanding benefits, scheduling doctor visits, and finding in-network doctors. In an HCSC study, members who acted on a BVA recommendation saw an average savings of approximately $2,000 per claim; Primary Nurse: The Primary Nurse model helps members with complex medical conditions better understand and manage their unique health care needs; Decision Support: Members can create a custom profile through the online employee decision tool during enrollment to help them determine the plan that best suits their needs. Members can also call the Blue Directions help center for 24/7 support during the enrollment process to address their questions.
