The AIS Report on Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans

In an effort to bring you a broader picture of the health insurance industry, AIS Health is incorporating its monthly coverage of Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans into the weekly newsletter Health Plan Week, and discontinuing publication of the monthly newsletter The AIS Report on Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans.

All subscribers to The AIS Report are now instead subscribed to Health Plan Week, which, in addition to its weekly coverage of business, financial and regulatory news of BCBS plans and other health insurers, now also includes an extra 4-page monthly update that focuses specifically on the strategies and business activities of Blues plans.

Access Health Plan Week's subscriber-only content at

Additionally, all subscribers will receive a complimentary six-month subscription to AIS Health Data’s The AIS Guide to Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans, a website app that combines a directory lookup function, downloadable reports and spreadsheets, and a continuous newsfeed of original AIS reporting on topics about and affecting the BCBS health care community.

If you have any questions about Health Plan Week’s future coverage of Blues plans, please email Executive Editor Jill Brown at For questions concerning your subscription, please contact Customer Service Manager Tracey Filar Atwood at
