Product offerings for members who have lost employer-sponsored coverage:
Simplified underwriting for a special individual BlueSaver product for members who have lost their employer-sponsored coverage ended Jan. 31. You can also encourage customers to apply for any individual product in our extensive portfolio. You can help them make sense of the many options available with our new, easy-to-use online tool, Coverage AdvisorTM, powered by Subimo, LLC.

Coverage AdvisorTM allows you to guide shoppers to make better decisions so they spend their health care dollars more wisely. The tool creates customized health profiles for shoppers and those in their coverage plan. Based on the information entered, Coverage AdvisorTM uses our different benefit plans to give shoppers an estimate of their family's health care needs for the coming year, and it can help them understand the out-of-pocket costs they may incur under each of our benefit plans.
