BCBSAZ Launches Expanded Portfolio of Specialty Insurance Products for Employers

New suite of benefits focuses on total health and well-being coverage

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ) has teamed up with leading insurance companies with additional products—dental, disability1, and life1 insurance—to help employers create an integrated benefits program through one of the most trusted names in the industry. The BCBSAZ specialty portfolio makes it easier for businesses to provide competitive coverage options to their employees for all health or life events.

This comprehensive approach to care simplifies the administration and ongoing management of benefits. It also provides insights between plans that are often lost when plans are managed separately.

“Arizona companies have long relied on BCBSAZ for their medical, pharmacy, and wellness benefits. Now they can turn to us to help round out their benefits package with affordable specialty products,” said BCBSAZ’s Chief Growth Officer Paige Rothermel. “Integrated benefits packages provide employers with an affordable way to create the kind of programs that will attract and retain high-quality talent.”

These new products are made available with leading partners, including AXA1 for life and disability options, and Dominion National for administrative services on dental products. BCBSAZ now provides the following market-driven solutions to qualifying employer groups:

• Dental plans with a range of services, such as routine exams, X-rays, and teeth cleaning.

• Life and disability insurance plans that include:

  • Worldwide travel assistance, such as emergency medical transportation, and concierge support.2
  • Employee assistance programs to address work-related or personal problems that may impact health as well as mental and emotional well-being.3

Employers that take advantage of BCBSAZ’s portfolio of integrated specialty products can expect benefits to work together seamlessly, affordable options that provide additional levels of protection, and local service to address all their questions. For more information, visit
