  • Capital BlueCross Improves the Healthcare Experience for Members with Enhanced Digital Functionality
    New secure website includes more user friendly, mobile optimized features

    HARRISBURG, Pa., March 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Capital BlueCross today announced the launch of its newly designed secure website, allowing members greater ease and convenience when accessing their health plan information. The digital improvements provide members with a more personalized healthcare experience with streamlined options and easy to find information. 

    In the complex world of healthcare, it often can be difficult and confusing for individuals to find what they are looking for when it comes to their health insurance information. The new secure site is designed to change that with its customer-friendly design. Members of Capital BlueCross can now find benefit and claims information more easily, from any digital device. The enhancements to the secure site are complemented by recent upgrades to the company's main website,, with the same objectives in mind.

    "As in every other industry, we recognize the important role technology plays in shaping the healthcare experience for our members. Understanding health plan information, like benefits, deductibles and provider networks, can be overwhelming. As healthcare consumers ourselves, we needed to make the experience much easier and engaging for our members," said Donna K. Lencki, Chief Marketing Officer, Capital BlueCross. "Whether the site is being accessed by a smart phone, tablet, or personal computer, the information will be clear, concise, and easy to use – all contributing to a better overall experience and improved ability to make informed healthcare decisions."

    A highlighted feature of the new secure site is the digital ID card. Members can now store the virtual card on their smartphone.

    All members over the age of 18 can create an account to view and manage their benefits online.

    The secure site allows members to easily:

    • Access their digital member ID card allowing members to see important coverage information from any device, at any time
    • Register for telehealth and receive virtual care from a provider from their phone, tablet, or computer
    • Redesigned explanation of benefits
    • View temporary evidence of coverage
    • Learn about their benefits through new, easy to read features
    • Review medical claims/explanation of benefits
    • Connect to wellness tools and resources
    • Find an in-network provider with the Find a Doctor tool

    The site also features a preference center allowing most members to choose if they prefer texts or emails when we need to communicate with them. The company already provides wellness tips and personalized messaging to members who have opted in to its texting platform, Loop.

    Additionally, the site has been further enhanced to aid people with disabilities in navigating the information.

    As a leader in consumer experience, Capital BlueCross strives to continuously improve upon the services and solutions we offer our members and the community. With an enterprise-wide commitment to driving innovation through technology, resources like our secure account will constantly be enhanced to ensure the best possible experience.

    Our focus on the customer experience is evidenced in the results from the most recent American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) Syndicated Study for Health Insurance Providers. The ACSI is the only cross-industry benchmark of its kind. For the fourth straight year, from 2014 to 2017, Capital BlueCross scored higher than all measured health insurance providers that are tracked in the syndicated study. In fact, Capital BlueCross further improved its leadership position, among health insurance providers tracked by the index, from prior years and exceeded the health insurance industry average by seven points.
