Staying Strong for South Carolina The economic landscape of the Palmetto State has changed since BlueCross was formed to provide health coverage to working-class South Carolinians. Textile mills have shuttered, banking headquarters have come and gone, and now small businesses are struggling under tough financial times. Yet one company still stands tall after 65 years … BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina. And our success is South Carolina’s success. As a highly diversified corporation of more than 40 companies, BlueCross employs more than 8,000 South Carolinians in 1,200 different job types.

BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina

As an innovator in health care delivery, BlueCross has offered new products and services that have evolved over time to improve access to and the quality of the health care our customers need. And as a community investor, BlueCross is heads and shoulders above other organizations. To date, our Foundation has allocated more than $30.1 million to address health care issues for our state’s most vulnerable populations, including the uninsured and underinsured. Since our founding in 1946, BlueCross has offered security, stability and strength to the people of South Carolina. And we plan on doing it for many more years to come.

BlueChoice HealthPlan of South Carolina

Let us help you strengthen your health benefits and stabilize your costs. Call us today at 1-877-313-2583.

SIXTY-FIVE YEARS BENEFITING SOUTH CAROLINA BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and BlueChoice HealthPlan of South Carolina are independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.

ABOUT Our SPONSORs Our Section W SPONSORS e’re proud to sponsor the Book of Lists, because lists are great tools to have when you need to get things done — like choosing a health plan. In a recent survey, South Carolinians listed these features for choosing an insurer: best price for the level of coverage, a large provider network to choose from, and good customer service. They also want their insurer to be a company that employs thousands of South Carolinians, gives back to the community and is financially strong and secure. Not surprisingly, BlueCross and BlueChoice HealthPlan are at the top of the list for all of these attributes. When it’s time to select your next health plan, we hope we’ll be at the top of your list, too. Pictured from left to right:

Digital Solutions

...Copiers & Service

Joe Pollock, Owner

From desktop printers to high-speed, high-volume production workhorses, we deliver the equipment, network connections, software and service you need.

Is Your Document Technology Working for Your Business? Documents allow information to flow in and out of your business, and are therefore crucial to dayto-day operations. However, most business owners don’t think about document workflow until a copier or printer breaks down. That’s when it’s important to have a good relationship with your office equipment service provider, says Joe Pollock, so you don’t waste a minute of valuable time and productivity. As the owner of Pollock Company, one of the largest independent document management solutions providers in the Southeast, Pollock understands that businesses can only grow if all systems are working seamlessly. “Our industry is in transition,” explains Pollock, “so you you want a service provider who is small enough to stay current with technology and be there quickly when there is a need for service.” To ensure everything from desktop printers to high-speed, high-volume production equipment stays worry-free, Pollock recommends working with a provider who can deliver a variety of options, network connections, software and service. Pollock Company works with such reliable manufacturers as Konica Minolta and Canon. “Having more than one product line means there’s no forcing a product to fit a niche because it’s the only on available,” he says. Additionally, Pollock points out, that most document management service providers are branch offices of large corporations that may not store parts locally, and do their billing, leasing and dispatching remotely. If our clients, or potential clients, need anything, including emergency service, parts, billing questions, delivery information, we have the answers, locally. We pride ourselves in offering prompt, dependable service and local accountability. “Our managed print services division handles everything from a desktop printer to an actual print shop and supplies with consolidated billing to help lower clients’ operating costs.” Finally, Pollock says, after 45 years in business, his company continues to prove it’s committed to its clients and the community. “Almost one half of our employees have been with Pollock for 10+ years, and over one third have been with us 15+ years. This experience benefits our clients by providing exceptional service. Anyone can sign a contract once. We want our customers to be with us for the long term.”

R. Joseph Pollock Compay has been selected for the inagural Konica Minolta Dealer Award fo for Excellence, recognizing Pollock’s ongoing committment to the Augusta & Columbia communities.

South Carolina’s class of 2011 is the first to earn more than $960 million in college scholarships. The scholarship totals came from an annual survey of S.C. school districts; public charter schools; the Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics in Hartsville; and the Governor’s School for Arts and Humanities in Greenville. The Education Department estimated that 90% of the state’s scholarships are academic and 10% are athletic, although sports scholarships also have academic requirements. Life, Hope and Palmetto Fellows scholarships represent about a fifth of the state’s total. The numbers represent scholarships for technical colleges and two-year schools, as well as for four-year colleges and universities.

In health care, the 80/20 rule isn’t a business principle, it’s a value proposition. Eighty percent of health care costs come from just 20 percent of the population. So a good health plan shouldn’t simply pay claims, but should also keep healthy members well and put those with chronic conditions in better control of their illnesses. That’s the value of Blue! No matter where our members fit into the 80/20 rule, there are programs, services or tools to help them maintain or improve their health. That means lower claims costs, less absenteeism from work or school and more productive employees.

BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina

And with the best negotiated rates on the largest provider network in the state and nation, our members get the health care they need for the lowest out-ofpocket costs, no matter what stage of health they’re in. From preventive checkups with network doctors to proactive case management from our caring nurses, BlueCross and BlueChoice HealthPlan offer more than a benefit plan — we offer a value proposition: the broadest access to quality health care services at the most for your money.

BlueChoice HealthPlan of South Carolina

Let us help you strengthen your health benefits and stabilize your costs. Call us today at 1-877-313-2583.

SIXTY-FIVE YEARS BENEFITING SOUTH CAROLINA BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and BlueChoice HealthPlan of South Carolina are independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.
