Make Informed Health Care Decisions with Smart Decision Technology

One of the many valuable resources CaliforniaChoice offers small business owners is our suite of Smart Decision Technology tools.

Each of the four tools is designed to simplify the process of selecting a health plan for you and your employees.


1. Online Enrollment

Go paperless with online enrollment. It eliminates incomplete applications, reduces the number of pending items, and decreases your overall processing time. You can even track enrollments to see who still needs to complete an application.

A traditional paper-based enrollment is still available. If your group has employees in multiple locations, you can choose a combination of online and paper enrollment.


2. Automated Choice Profiler

This online assistant give your employees the ability to review premiums, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket costs (like copays and co-insurance) to get a total estimated cost of annual health insurance coverage. Employees can look at plans side-by-side based on costs, risk, and quality. The Automated Choice Profiler helps your employees find the right coverage to meet their ongoing, potential, or planned health care needs.


3. Online Provider Search

Take the guesswork out of finding the right doctor by offering employees an online search tool. It’s the easiest way to know whether a preferred doctor is part of any of the eight health plans offered through CaliforniaChoice.

Here’s how it works:

  • Enter a city or ZIP Code
  • Specify the doctor’s gender
  • Select a health plan
  • Review the results

You can narrow or widen a search by adding:

  • Hospital affiliation
  • Language(s) spoken
  • Preferred doctor’s last name
  • Distance from your targeted ZIP Code or city

4. Online Rx Search

Help your employees find the right health plan to match their prescription drug needs. Our online search tools allows you to look up medications based on these criteria:

  • Alphabetical search
  • Brand or generic drug name
  • Therapeutic class: prescriptions for pain, infection, or treatment of the heart
  • Various health conditions, such as acid reflux, cancer, or diabetes
