are a new family of limited network HMO plans: these plans are focused on delivering choice, affordability, and access to high-quality care with lower premiums.

Blue Shield is committed to leveraging their robust and innovative care models to fundamentally change healthcare delivery.

An accountable care organization (ACO) is a network of doctors and hospitals that shares responsibility for providing coordinated care to members and limiting unnecessary spending. As with a traditional HMO plan, each member’s care is centered around a primary care physician.

Blue Shield’s ACO framework is based on a proven record of delivering integrated care to more than 200,000 Californians.

The Trio ACO HMO plans are designed to help break down barriers, enhance care coordination, reduce duplication of services, and improve the member’s overall experience.

Our plans are designed to help:

  • Link members to the right services
  • Create cross-organizational focus on patients with complex needs
  • Improve discharge processes and programs to reduce hospital readmissions

  1. I’m on SSDI and my agent set me up with Blueshield/Covered California silver 94 HMO trio…

    I notified her that my income had increased…and without notifying me signed me up for silver 87 HMO trio starting 9/1/2018!!

    My question is…can I possibly have this new insurance [silver 87 vs 94] changed or postponed?

    • When you get subsidies from Covered CA you are mandated to report changes of income within 30 days. When you changed your income to show an increase, Covered CA automatically changes the subsidy and the Silver Level. If your income decreases, you can report that change.

      See chart below or visit our page on The main change is that your specialist visits go from $8 to $25.

      You can also use our quote engine to double check income, silver level, premium, benefits, etc.

      Enhanced Silver
