Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas Announces Several Enhancements to its Blue Directions Private Exchange Solution for Large Employers

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas announced several enhancements to its Blue Directions private exchange solution for large employers, available now for the upcoming 2016 benefit plan year. The online platform'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 help consumers better understand their health care options and compare costs. BCBSTX'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. Employees can then use this amount toward the purchase of benefits unique to their needs.
