Excellus BCBS wants to ensure as many of our group members as possible can maintain their health insurance benefits. Through June 1, 2020, we are allowing mid-year plan changes to allow for lower cost employer and employee plans to accommodate the COVID-19 impacts on both parties.
- Allow their employees to switch to a lower cost existing plan
- Buy down to a lower cost plan
Additionally, employees who waived coverage and now want health insurance will be able to sign up for a plan through their group during our special open enrollment throughout the state of emergency.
Contact your account representative if you would like to take advantage of any of these options or for more information on how we can help.
