Making a move? You may be able to change more than your address.
If you’re in the market for a house, you’re probably knee-deep in listings and phone calls from realtors. Between showing your house, bidding on another, settlement, packing and unpacking… moving can be stressful. But there’s a reward waiting at the end of the process, besides your lovely new home: new health insurance options.
Welcome to the neighborhood…and your new health plan
When you make a permanent move within the Philadelphia region,* you may have the opportunity to sign up for an affordable, new health insurance plan for yourself or your family. Independence Blue Cross offers an expansive network of more than 46,000 doctors and 160 hospitals to choose from, with plans for every need and budget.
You might even qualify for financial assistance: In 2017, 86 percent of Independence Blue Cross members who purchased a health plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace qualified for financial assistance to help pay for their monthly premium. Of those members, 1 out of 5 was able to purchase a plan with a zero monthly premium!†
