Blue on DemandUpdates: Signature Preferred PPO, New Hybrid Designs, and more!
Signature Preferred PPO packages
We are pleased to introduce a new streamlined way to shop for packages, by taking the guesswork out of choosing the right plans for your groups. The Excellus BCBS Signature Preferred PPO packages are a set of 16 packages pre-approved for underwriting. They can help make the selection process easier and the quoting process faster. The Signature Preferred PPO packages combine new, best-in-class features from our most widely-enrolled packages, and some newly created packages.

New Hybrid Designs
In addition to the Signature Preferred PPO packages, we’re also introducing two new hybrid designs to our Shop by Signature designs. In the Signature Hybrid 4 design, all services-- except prescription drug fills--apply toward the deductible; it also has family aggregation and a 2x multiplier for out of network coverage. The new Signature Hybrid 5 design has copays after deductible, but Rx is not integrated; it also has family aggregation and a 2x multiplier. These new designs offer more choices and flexibility to meet the needs of your clients.
Visit Blue on Demand to see the new hybrid designs.
Changes to Individual & Families and Small Business plan quoting
If you use the “Small Business” or “Individual & Families” sections of Blue on Demand, you will notice a change to the homepage. All the functionality is there except you will no longer be able to change package options such as pediatric dental coverage, domestic partner, dependent age, and family coverage on the homepage. You will still be able to change these options on the summary view page by clicking on, ‘Change Package Options’.
