Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield: ERC

ERC Health

Anthem has recently rolled out with a new product in Central Ohio.  This product, at least initially, is a closed group – meaning only select Insurance Brokers can utilize.
The Anthem ERC (Employer Resource Council) is a program with certain Wellness criteria baked in.
Participating groups must agree to conduct biometric screenings and hold a health fair once per year, both of which are paid for by Anthem.
In return, members are assured that they will be part of a “healthy” pool of groups, which will ultimately help stabilize and reduce renewal increases, certainly over time.
In fact, over the past five years, 20% of ERC groups received no increase to their medical renewal, while 75% received a renewal increase of 10% or less.
