McAllen Independent School District Considers Change in Insurance Provider

Mcallen ISD may be the next South Texas school district to contract with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas at the expense of the current provider, HealthSmart.

The Blue Cross onslaught in South Texas appears to be gaining momentum. Touted superior PPO discounts are cited by some as the determining factor for success in gaining business with independent consultants predicting significant claim savings with the move.
