Blue Cross launches pilot project in schools


PORTLAND, Maine — Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield and its foundation hope to transfer experience gleaned from business health plans to school districts.

Officials say health coaches will work one-on-one with school teachers and staff to reduce health risks and thereby improve workers’ health and lower health care costs in school districts in Gardiner, Hampden, Readfield and Topsham.

The two-year project is open to teachers and other district staff who have elected to take the health insurance benefit offered by their school district.
