Anthem Blue Cross will offer an HSA Open Window for members to select an HSA Compatible plan. The open window is available December 1, 2009 through January 31, 2010 for a January 1st effective date. It is open to "All Plans" groups and "Designated Plans" groups that already have HSA Compatible plans.
  • If a "Designated Plans" group does not have a requested HSA Compatible plan as an option, the normal benefit modification guidelines will apply. Click here for guidelines on "How to Request Changes"
  • Members may not move into any HSA Compatible plan being discontinued in 2010.
