The Multi-Plan Approach

The Multi-Plan Approach

Give employees a choice of health plan options. Create two to three combinations of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee's health plans and provider networks so employees can choose the coverage that best suits their individual needs.

Here's how it works:

Step 1: Create health plan options

Design health plan options based on specifications such number of employees, copay and deductible amounts, coinsurance and maximum out-of-pocket cost. It's a good idea to provide employees with variety - such as one plan option with rich benefits and another that is more affordable.

Step 2: Add provider networks

Choose a network for each plan option.

  • Blue Network S - a wide variety of credentialed doctors, hospitals, health care providers and pharmacies - with a greater focus on affordability.
  • Blue Network P - a wide variety of credentialed doctors, hospitals, health care providers and pharmacies.

Step 3: Determine health plan choices

Your benefit combinations and choice of provider network determines both the plan coverage and cost. Create two or three plan options that provide the choice between richer benefits and lower cost.
