You hear so much about insurance companies these days – especially all the negatives. I’ve heard so many rumors about Obamacare that I don’t know what to believe anymore. And since I don’t have the time to read a TWO THOUSAND WORD document, I don’t know that I’ll figure it out anytime soon.
But what I do know? I like a company (an insurance company, even!) that’s trying to go the extra mile with its clients. And that’s Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Their affiliated health plan, WellPoint, is working hard to provide a personalized member experience.
Their 24/7 Nurseline is awesome! Being able to call and get connected with a nurse immediately, rather than having to go through a service and/or wait for a doctor’s call back is so reassuring, especially if you wake up in the middle of the night with a child crying over severe neck pain and Dr. Google’s making you panic that it might be meningitis.
I love its Future Moms program, which includes risk screening and educational support. But what it also includes (that I would have really liked when I was a new mom with a newborn) is their depression screening program. When I hadn’t slept for a month and didn’t know if it was depression or just life-changing exhaustion, I wish I would have had this program to help screen me. Instead of guessing for myself.
Probably my favorite part of the Well Point affiliate plan, however, is their fitness plan. Offering options like a personal trainer, a customized family meal plan (even with grocery lists!) and a personalized fitness plan certainly don’t sound like what I used to think of when I thought of insurance companies. Did you?
I think what it all boils down to for me is this: Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield seems to be moving into offering real, legitimate preventative lifestyle options and I LOVE that.
For someone who’s been working for the past year to develop a whole living plan, Well Point is extremely appealing. And guess what? YOU can receive a discount to FitOrbit, the fitness plan I’ve talked about above. All you have to do is click here: http://www.fitorbit.com/ib/MOMSAVES25.
If you do, let me know what you think! I think it’s great!
