The ownership change should be virtually invisible to NBA's customers, according to Steve O'Dell, executive vice president of BCBSCO.
Founded in 1937, BCBSCO and its subsidiaries serve 370,000 Colorado members through HMO, PPO, point-of-service, and traditional health plans.
We view this agreement as the beginning of a strong relationship enabling us to partner with BCBSCO to deliver useful services to their customers today and into the future.
For example, right now a BCBSCO customer who wants to add a dependent to a health benefit plan must fill out a paper form and submit that form to his or her human resources department which, in turn, sends it to BCBSCO.
Both BCBSCO and Healtheon are committed to security of the information.
