Blue Shield has released a rate pass for all Q3 2018 medical and specialty plans.

Blue Shield Basic Life/AD&D Quick Match Program is new and approved and available to more groups through the end of 2018. The Quick Match Program provides streamlined underwriting by matching renewal rates from the group’s current life insurance company. The program is available to new and existing small business groups adding life insurance with a minimum of 10 eligible employees.

Blue Shield leads the way to bring health care into the digital age. Beginning this year, in an effort to empower patients, improve care and lower health costs, Blue Shield will require network providers to agree to participate in Manifest MedEx, the largest nonprofit health information network that is creating comprehensive, real-time digital health records for all Californians. This decision aligns with the CMS announcement earlier this month that outlines steps to increase the interoperability, portability and availability of medical data. Blue Shield is asking providers in their nationally recognized Accountable Care Organization (ACO) program to sign a participation agreement with Manifest MedEx by August 31, 2018 and other network providers to do so as a part of their next contract renewal.
