Effective April 1, 2012: Beginning April 1, 2012, we will be offering two new large group plans to complement our Access BlueSM family of plans: Access Blue New England Basic with a standard $2,000 deductible, and Access Blue New England Basic Saver, a Health Savings Account (HSA) compliant plan.
Access Blue New England Basic
Our Access Blue New England plans combine New England-wide coverage and the savings of our HMO Blue New England regional managed care plans with the direct access of our Access Blue plans. This new plan gives members the flexibility to seek care directly from participating specialists throughout New England without a referral from their Primary Care Provider (PCP). It includes a standard $2,000 individual and a $4,000 family deductible. Large group insured accounts may also include the Hospital Choice Cost Share option via rider.
Access Blue New England Basic Saver
We are also introducing Access Blue New England Basic Saver, a new standard plan for large group sales. Like other Access Blue plans, this plan combines the benefits of a managed care plan in our New England network with the flexibility of an open-access plan. Access Blue New England Basic Saver provides an affordable solution to large group accounts looking for a HSA-compliant, open-access managed care plan in New England.
These plans were available for individual and small group sales beginning January 1, 2012, and will be available to large group sales beginning April 1, 2012.
