Lumenos HIA Plan

Wouldn’t it be great if there was an insurance plan that actually rewarded you for making healthy decisions?  There is.  The Lumenos Health Incentive Account, or HIA, puts you and your doctor in control of your health care decisions and Anthem Blue Cross will put money in your account when you complete programs designed to make you healthier

The Lumenos HIA plan is one in the family of consumer-driven health plans offered by BC Life & Health Insurance Company. Consumer-driven health plans are designed to educate you about health care options and empower you to take control of your health, as well as the dollars you spend on your care. With the Lumenos HIA plan, you can earn health care dollars for your Health Incentive Account (HIA) by taking steps that can help you achieve your health potential. The dollars you earn in your HIA are available for you to help reduce your out-of-pocket expenses under the plan.  

The plan also includes a Traditional Health Coverage component – similar to a typical health plan – which helps protect you against further health care expenses. In addition, the Lumenos HIA provides access to personalized health services and online tools to help you manage your health, health decisions and health care dollars.
