Clear SavingsWe have an opportunity to help reduce the rapidly rising cost of healthcare. We often do a thorough job of researching our retail purchases, becoming informed and understanding our options and alternatives. Bringing the same level of consumerism to our medical decisions can help us to receive the best care - ensuring better outcomes at a better price.
Clear Savings is one tool members can use. Clear Savings is a health cost transparency tool, and is available to members with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota to help review health care options and compare costs. Log into BlueCross BlueShield of Minnesota through myCPS.org and click on the shopping cart on the right side to access the tool.
Cost Look Up - You can look up a prescription or medical service and see what you can expect to pay at a specific provider based on your health plan, network, and location. Not only can you actively shop for healthcare and save money out of your pocket, but you lower the costs that are experienced by the CHP, lowering everyone's exposure.
Ways to Save Alerts - Clear Savings will look at what your medical plan covers, and will send savings opportunities to workers so that they can act on them and save money on their prescriptions and routine medical procedures!
Health Care University - Understanding the basics of health benefits and how to shop for care is becoming increasingly important. Health Care University uses short videos, quizzes, and games to educate on subjects such as healthcare basics, insurance, benefit selection, and billing.
