Starting July 1, EmblemHealth Plan, Inc., and EmblemHealth Insurance Company will offer existing large group benefit plan designs with access to the Bridge Program’s combined five networks as an alternative to the current single-network access. The Bridge program is also available to both ConnectiCare and EmblemHealth employees and other ASO clients.
We created a new Bridge webpage to replace and enhance the Administrative Services Only (ASO) Bridge Program materials that have been available. The webpage should help you differentiate the ASO self-funded Bridge Program plans administered by EmblemHealth Insurance Company from the new, fully insured plans, and help you understand which administrative guidelines to follow. All plans will continue to follow the same Bridge Program payment protocols.
