Effective January 1, 2018, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts is rolling out a new SmartShopper program. It will be available to employer groups that self-fund their health insurance benefits.
Under the program, employees can earn up to $250 in cash rewards per procedure when they shop for and get care from lower cost, quality providers. They will be able to use the Blue Cross’ Find a Doctor & Estimate Costs tool to view what their out-of-pocket costs for a procedure will be while they shop, sort providers by quality rating and distance, and read and write reviews.
If you’d like more information about whether your organization could benefit from this program, please contact our team at 781-759-1222.
