The health-care marketplace is complicated. Skyrocketing premiums, soaring deductibles and increased out of pocket costs are the new normal.
But at the PHBP we have you covered.
When we launched this plan in 2007 we made a commitment to offer free, high quality insurance for our freelance workforce. Over a decade later, despite rising healthcare costs, we are still keeping that promise.
While your Medical coverage will remain with Anthem Blue Cross, the nation’s largest of providers, in 2019 the PHBP will be providing different types of coverage based on your earnings.
