Keeping the Cost of Health Care Low

BlueShield is working with you to keep health care affordable.

  • We’ll show you how proactive health care can lower the costs of your benefits plan.
  • We can provide information and tools to help you engage your employees in managing the cost of their health care.

Why Are Health Care Costs Rising?

America is spending more on health care; it’s not a temporary phenomenon. Medical expenditures are rising due to more technological advanced care; newer, more expensive prescription drugs; and increased use of hospital services, equipment, and specialty care.

What Can Be Done

Working together, employers, insurers, providers, and consumers can help slow growing costs. We can also help your employees make healthier choices and become smarter health care consumers through proactive programs and services, such as:
