    • Virtual care services at PCP office visit copay
    • Adult dental product available on a standalone basis year-round

    New PersonalCare plans:

    • Predictable cost shares
    • Members can switch PersonalCare Partner Systems as well as PCP monthly and each family member can be on a different Partner System.

    And don't forget, those of you selling in the Individual market have access to the dedicated Producer Support team Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. (PST).
