Blue Shield Broker Blast

The past several weeks have seen an unprecedented level of activity as Californians – and Americans nationwide – purchase health insurance created through the Affordable Care Act. Multiple news outlets – such as the San Francisco Chronicle –

http://www.sfgate.com/health/article/Deadline-time-signups-for-Covered-California-jam-5365042.php

reported the huge surge in last-minute enrollments as people rushed to meet the March 31 enrollment deadline. Covered California reported record levels of traffic on its online exchange – with 234,000+ unique visitors on March 31.

The huge surge in activity has challenged the ability of the California state exchange – and our industry – to meet the demand. These conditions led Covered California to extend the application deadline to April 15 (see the link above)

http://healthreformquotes.com/individual/companies/covered-ca/fillable-pdf/

to complete an enrollment application with a certified delegate.

Given the high level of activity up to this point, we expect conditions to remain challenging through the April 15 extension. At Blue Shield, we continue to add resources to address service issues. We know this has not been an easy time for you and your clients. We want to thank you for your ongoing patience and support during this period.

We also want to thank you for working with Blue Shield. Several hundred thousand Californians have chosen Blue Shield this first open enrollment period. This is a significant accomplishment and a tribute to our relationship with the broker community.

Hi Steve

I had submitted an easy pay form. https://www.blueshieldca.com/producer/download/public/A17018.pdf

Lesson learned : don’t submit those – do it online.

I bet the blue shield data entry staff got account numbers wrong, not just my name misspellings. Once I reentered online, ensuring correct account numbers, it went through.
