New Low-Cost Plan Available for Small Groups
EmblemHealth HealthEssentials EPO
The EmblemHealth HealthEssentials EPO plan is now available for small groups in the downstate region which includes New York City, Westchester, Rockland and Long Island.
HealthEssentials is a new low-cost option that offers peace of mind to groups and allows them to control their premium costs. With groups looking for an alternative to higher-priced products, this plan can fit the bill. It provides coverage for full preventive care, as well as hospital-billed services within our National network of facilities here in the tristate and throughout all 50 states.

Value-added services include:
A sales sheet with 4th quarter 2012 rates is now available to brokers. A brief summary of the plan can be found in the Health Plans section of our web site, under the "EPO Plans" heading. Please note that the rates should be available on HealthConnect on Friday, September 14.
To discuss the plan in further detail, contact your EmblemHealth Sales representative.
