51-125: Anthem to Provide 90-Day Notice for Discontinued Large Group Plans

Jul 07, 2011

90-day Notice for Discontinued Plans

A 2011 California Law (AB 2470 effective 1/1/2011) requires that clients be notified 90 days in advance of a health benefit plan being withdrawn from the market.

Anthem Blue Cross has been carefully reviewing our portfolio for business with 51 or more employees. Due to the results of their research, they have certain health plans that have extremely low membership which will discontinue on or after October 1, 2011. At that time, those plans will no longer be available, and members on those plans will need to switch to other plan options. More details to come.

Anthem will send quarterly notifications to impacted Pooled ONLY clients and brokers. This 90-day letter is simply an advance notice as you and your client will continue to receive your renewal package with suggested replacement plans, rates, choices and details.
