2-99: Stop Selling ARCUS Bank HSAs Effective Immediately

Nov 13, 2009

Anthem Blue Cross to Stop Selling ARCUS Bank HSAs 
Due to a renewed focus on Anthem Blue Cross' core business, coupled with changes in the financial regulatory environment, Anthem's parent company has decided to exit the banking business. As a result of this decision, Anthem will no longer be selling the ARCUS Bank health savings account (HSA) product.

Anthem remains committed to their consumer-driven strategy and will continue to sell HSA-compatible plans in both the Group and Individual markets, with The Bank of New York Mellon (ACS|BNY Mellon) as Anthem's integrated banking solution.
Anthem is currently working with the FDIC to create a plan with third-party financial institutions to ensure a smooth transition of the health savings accounts currently held by ARCUS Bank.  

Please note that ARCUS Financial Services, a separate company, will continue to provide service to our members with Chase HSAs.    

As revised collateral and more details about the transition from ARCUS Bank become available, Anthem will provide updates.
