SmartSense and Premier, which BCBSGa will begin offering on July 19, are targeted towards Georgians who work for companies that do not offer health care coverage, as well as early retirees and others who want a cost effective option.
Connolly says the availability of SmartSense and Premier will be appealing options for many Georgians who want more control over their health care choices and reflects the company's on-going commitment to reduce the percentage of Americans who are uninsured.
"Our goal is to offer a menu of plans that provide consumers with benefits that address a variety of life stages," said Connolly. "As we move forward, we will continue to focus on providing affordable plans that maintain the high quality and value-added benefits consumers have come to expect."
Members choosing SmartSense and Premier have access to more than 15,000 Georgia PPO network doctors and specialists and nearly 170 hospitals. These plans also provide coverage outside the state of Georgia through the Blue Card program.
In addition to SmartSense and Premier, BCBSGa also offers Tonik -- an individual product targeted toward Georgia's "young invincibles" -- individuals between the ages of 18 and 29. Since introducing the products in 2006, more than 8,000 Georgians are covered by Tonik.
