  • The new address to submit Small Group premium payments is:
    Blue Shield, P.O. Box 749415, Los Angeles, CA 90074-9415.
  • Check out the Delinquency and Cancellation Procedures.

Employer Connection Plus

  • Groups can manage their account online and set up automatic payments to avoid late payment notices.
  • For groups available on Employer Connection Plus, new hire enrollments and other changes can be made online.

Please note: online changes do not take effect immediately, typically 5-7 business days to be completed. Once an online enrollment has been submitted, edits or correction cannot be done online. You must submit a Subscriber Change Request form.

Large Groups: Determining If the Group Will Get a Large or Small Group Contract at Renewal

  • Throughout the year, Blue Shield account managers will be reaching out to current large groups to validate their group size based on the new definition and calculation and to ensure that groups are renewed into the appropriate line of business based on their employee calculations. Blue Shield will use this information to distribute the appropriate renewal package at the group’s anniversary date.
