We continue to improve our members’ digital experience
We’ve enhanced the blueshieldca.com account portal for our members so they can quickly and easily find relevant information specific to their plan. The updated portal has a bold new design with clear action buttons and links to popular tasks.
Along with a fresh look, members will notice clearer visuals of their plan’s annual bills, claims, remaining deductibles and copayment maximums as well as a new My Plan page that summarizes plan coverage, covered members, physicians and more. All of this information is available anywhere, anytime and on any device.
In addition, members now have access to their health information even faster with the Blue Shield mobile app’s newest improvement: fingerprint/touch ID. With the certified security of fingerprint authentication, account details are always available without the hassle of a username or password.
- We will send employers an alert via email on April 20, 2017.
- We will notify members of the portal updates via email this month and next, plus there will be a guided tour the first time they log into the new portal. Email dated 4.19.2017
