  • To keep out-of-pocket expenses down, we strongly urge  clients to see doctors who are participating in their plan’s network.
  • If a service isn’t covered, your clients will be responsible for all billed charges from out-of-network providers.
  • The Find a Doctor tool will help your clients find a doctor in our network.

  1. How come completed my boyfriends Covered CA application for Blue Shield yet you simply gave me the direct affiliate link above asked me to do everything on my own with the application process for Blue Shield direct. This process has been anything but convenient.

    • One reason we get so involved in Covered CA applications, is that Covered CA wants you to wait on hold and call them directly. Their process for one to select an agent is not what they promised us at their mandatory training. Your boyfriend had already partially completed an application with us a few years back. We can also be of more help during the year… The last day of open enrollment is not a good day to expect a lot of personal attention.

      When you use OUR affiliate link, we get notified of the progress of your application. If you just go to Blue Shield’s website, we are not your agent, nor do we know anything about your application. If you want us as your agent… got confused as to which link to use… Not Covered CA etc. we can send you a Broker of Record letter to send to us, then we will send to Blue Shield.

      The Blue Shield ONLINE application above, is rather simple, no income or medical questions. We already discussed the plans with you. You didn’t want Medi-Cal, nor did you qualify for subsidies at your income level. IMHO the complex part is the time and effort selecting a plan, going over coverages and definitions. The hardest part of the application is reading the disclosures and putting in your credit card information. Our website is full of intricate policy details. We feel we can help our clients with that, better than filling out your name and address and going over 16 digit credit card numbers.

      The next thing is that as a Blue Shield member, you can get a member portal to give you instant 24/7 information on your policy, claims and premiums.

  2. It looks like health Net Silver 70 Enhanced Care PPO and Blue Shield Silver 70 PPO offer the exact same benefits.

    However, Health Net is $593.48 and Blue Shield is $740.13.

    Is that correct?
