The AIS Report on Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans delivers timely news and insightful analysis of new products, market share, strategies, conversions, financing, profitability and strategic alliances of Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans, which are major players in every U.S. health insurance market. The 12-page monthly newsletter is must reading for plan managers and others who consider BCBS plans to be partners or competitors.

The June issue features hard-hitting articles, such as “BCBSA Goes Global in Granting License To Capture Growing Expatriate Market,” which includes insights from the Executive Director of Marketing and Sales Support Programs at the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) and the Chief Product Development Officer at GeoBlue, a Pennsylvania-based brokerage bought and licensed by BCBSA to offer group insurance to international business travelers and expats.

In another article, “High-profile Law Firm’s Antitrust Charges Stoke Interest in N.C. Blues Lawsuit,” several legal experts and health insurance market observers told The AIS Report on Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans that they view the proposed class-action antitrust lawsuit filed earlier this year against Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and BCBSA as a potential game-changer.
