As you will see, EmblemHealth coverage lets your groups take advantage of our innovative, family-friendly benefit designs at our highly competitive third quarter 2011 rates for our PPO, EPO/InBalance EPO and CompreHealth plans. Highlights of these plans include the following:

  • Combining a family-friendly benefits design with complete freedom of provider choice in and out of network, EmblemHealth PPO succeeds in meeting most member needs in network, where costs are lowest.
  • Our large network of doctors and hospitals and broad range of family-friendly, in-network only benefits combine to make EmblemHealth EPO and InBalance EPO plans attractive -- and affordable -- for many groups.
  • With access to care at convenient physician group practices, as well as physicians in private practice, CompreHealth reduces group and member costs -- starting at under $300 a month for employees choosing the individual rate tier -- and offers great in-network-only benefits coordinated by a physician of the member's choosing.*

We believe that these plans provide your clients with a range of attractive coverage options at price points that enable groups to get the most for their health care dollars.

We look forward to continuing to work closely with you to best serve our customers and your clients. If you have any questions, please contact your EmblemHealth representative.
