Per the Globe, BCBS says that "Google wants to attract as many users as possible to its site, while Blue Cross-Blue Shield seeks to offer members an online tool."

Regarding attracting users to Google's site -- Google says it isn't serving ads on Google Health, but presumably that won't last for long, because that's how the Googleplex keeps humming.
