2021 Large Group Product Updates

2020 has been a challenging year in ways we’ve never experienced before. Financial solvency is a real concern and, through it all, businesses are seeking new ways to support and protect the health and wellbeing of one of your biggest assets: your employees.

Excellus BCBS has a long history of protecting people in the communities of Upstate New York. In these evolving times, as always, we’re committed to bringing our business partners even more options for greater flexibility and better cost control, and to providing our members with increased access to high-quality, more affordable care.

Here’s What’s New for 2021:

  • Excellus Blue Simplicity Plans 1 offer you a budget-friendly copay option while giving your employees an easy-to-understand plan with predictable health care costs.
  • Expanded wellbeing program choices give greater flexibility based on desired financial and engagement levels, as well as the features your employees want most from a wellbeing program.
  • Telemedicine and telehealth services covered in full 2 in 2021, making care more accessible and affordable for your employees and their families.
  • Additional medical preventive services covered before the deductible on HDHPs, offering the ability to provide increased value to your employees.
