Blue Cross and Blue Shield new office opens in Pine Bluff

ArkansasBlue, Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s health insurance store, is now open on South Olive Street, across from the Walmart Supercenter.

The business is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and the grand opening is planned for Wednesday.

The store will sell health and dental insurance and Blue Cross members may visit the business when they have questions about their coverage.

“The new health care law becomes fully effective in 2014 and will mean big changes for Arkansans. Many people will be able to qualify for free or very low-cost health insurance,” said Karen Raley, vice president of Communications. “Our staff at Arkansas Blue is prepared to help our customers understand the new law and choose the most affordable health plan available.”
