As the health care landscape continues to change and evolve, Anthem remains committed to finding health care solutions that meet their customers' needs. There’s a growing demand for products that supplement, complement or enhance Affordable Care Act (ACA) plans. Complementary products offer coverage for unexpected accidents and critical illness. They've been available in the Individual market for some time through a partnership with the Independence Holding Company (IHC). Through an extension of this partnership, Anthem is pleased to now have the ability to offer these types of products for your Small Group clients.
Anthem is offering webinars so you can earn more and learn more about serving your clients with these products. Be sure to sign up for one below.
There are three different types of plans available, each with its own plan design and coverage options as outlined in the Balance Plans Overview:
- Balance Base Plan
- Balance Plus Plan
- Balance Premier Plan
Initially, these plans will be available in certain states.
Here are a few situations where such products might be needed:
- Studies have shown that many people can’t afford to pay a deductible, when faced with unexpected expenses. Some of these products, when paired with an ACA plan, will help pay this out-of-pocket cost.
- Many of your clients who have ACA plans may not have access to benefits outside of their plan. Pairing their Anthem ACA plan with a fixed indemnity product will provide benefits outside the network.
Here are some new tools to help you sell:
