The Alberta Blue Cross advantage
Unparallelled convenience for plan members.
With over 90 per cent of all claims direct billed by providers at the point of service, as well as online member claim submission options that are mobile-device friendly, we strive to make claiming simple and fast.
Practical benefits, affordable protection.
Our benefit plans provide choices to meet your everyday needs and interests, as well as valuable protection against the unknown.
Fast claim processing.
Our state-of-the-art claim adjudication system allows Alberta Blue Cross to have one of the fastest turnaround times in the benefits industry. That means your claims get paid sooner. And if you do submit a claim for reimbursement, with e-mail statement notifications and direct deposit you no longer need to wait to receive a cheque by mail. Plus all claims are processed right here in Alberta.
The best price for prescription drugs.
When a pharmacist fills your prescription, you pay a dispensing fee. That fee varies from pharmacy to pharmacy. But with Alberta Blue Cross, pharmacies agree to a maximum fee. They also agree to give us the best price: if any customer gets a price break, all Alberta Blue Cross plan members get the same break.
Industry-leading plan management
We work hard to ensure your long-term plan sustainability in the face of escalating benefit costs. And because we’re Alberta-based, we respond quickly to health care system changes that affect you.
Our not-for-profit orientation guarantees you get the best value for your benefit dollars.
