Keeping Employees Covered

Is Blue Shield allowing employer groups to change plan selections off-cycle to accommodate revenue and workforce reduction due to COVID-19?

Posted by

Blue Shield will allow a one-time buy-down (leaner plan design with lower premiums) change off-cycle for employers and employees to adjust their health plan selection to meet their current needs.

Note: rates for employees who choose a buy-down plan off-cycle will be based on the age of the member at the time of the change.

Is there a special open enrollment period for individuals who have previously declined coverage?

Posted by

Employer groups may enroll new members off-anniversary through a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) through June 30, 2020, with July 1 as the latest effective date. This SEP is for employees who previously declined coverage for themselves or their dependents.

This applies to all fully insured Small Group (1-100) and Large Group (101+) employers, and includes enrollment for medical plans, dental plans, and vision plans.

This may be permitted under the employer’s policies regarding coverage, under the following conditions:

Employees who lose eligibility for coverage due to a reduction of hours or suspension of work may have the right to continue coverage under COBRA or Cal-COBRA. Employers should refer to their group service agreement for additional information.
