Agent Update - Individual Business

Posted by Medavie Blue Cross on December 22, 2022

We’re getting a brand-new look!

As you know, Medavie Blue Cross has a partnership agreement with Canassurance to distribute our individual health products in Ontario. This far-reaching initiative includes rebranding to a common health line brand name, Blue Cross Health, and comes with a refreshed brand design!

Each of the markets within Medavie Blue Cross and Canassurance is adopting this common health line brand. Blue Cross Health is a product category brand managed under the company brand and name (Medavie Blue Cross) and includes our major individual products (Elements, Guaranteed Issue, and Assured Access). Blue Cross Health has already been introduced to the Ontario market and is currently being rolled out in Atlantic. This rollout includes new updated marketing materials to help you promote the same great individual health products under the new branding.
