Capital BlueCross Launches PersonalBlue Saver PPOSM Plan

Coverage geared toward people primarily looking for basic protection from unexpected medical costs

June 4, 2012

HARRISBURG – Capital BlueCross understands that there are times when people want protection from unexpected medical expenses, but aren’t interested in full coverage with all the extra, more costly benefits. That’s why the company has rolled out PersonalBlue Saver PPO, a new product that caters to people with specific health insurance needs.

In addition to a low monthly premium, key product features include a choice of three deductible levels, 100 percent coverage for preventive care, coverage for X-rays and lab tests, and much more.

The cost cutting comes from a tailored plan that includes reduced benefits such as limits on yearly doctor office visits and a generic-only prescription drug plan.

"Capital BlueCross recognizes that health insurance is a rapidly-changing marketplace, one that we monitor closely and respond to quickly,” said Cindy Hatcher, Capital BlueCross Senior Director, Individual Products. “That is why we are constantly creating and changing products to meet the current needs of individuals in the community. The Saver PPO plan is a perfect example of a product that offers practicality and value to a particular category of individuals.”

Capital BlueCross has a long history of bringing innovative products, like Saver PPO, to its members and the community to help reduce cost, increase quality and improve satisfaction. Saver PPO is part of the company’s comprehensive product portfolio that includes a number of benefit plans tailored to individuals with specific coverage needs.

Saver PPO subscribers must be at least 19 years old and have not yet reached the age of 65. Anyone eligible for or enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid is not eligible for this product.
