Blue Shield of California Expands CalPERS NetValue Service Area
Date:7/21/2009

Blue Shield members will be eligible to sign up. Rates vary by region, but Blue Shield's NetValue HMO plan will be very competitively priced throughout the state. The NetValue basic plan will be the lowest priced health plan option for CalPERS Basic members who are state employees.

"At CalPERS, we are committed to seeking solutions to keep health care affordable while improving quality for our members and employers," said Gregory Franklin, Assistant Executive Officer, CalPERS Health Benefits Branch. "Working with Blue Shield of California to expand the NetValue network is another step in our journey toward that goal."

In addition to the expansion of the NetValue service area, Blue Shield continues to work with CalPERS on several innovative cost and quality initiatives, including an e-Prescribing pilot, a "virtual integrated model" pilot, and new product offerings. The e-Prescribing pilot will enhance patient safety and reduce costs by making it easier for physicians to access and input prescription information. The "virtual integrated model" pilot in the Sacramento region pairs Blue Shield of California with CalPERS, Hill Physicians Medical Group and Catholic Healthcare West to enhance service, and reduce costs for CalPERS members. In 2010, Blue Shield will also offer a new competitively priced Group Medicare Advantage product for CalPERS Members.
