As the January 1st effective date approached and passed, many people were left wondering how they should pay for their monthly premiums and how to obtain their ID card. Due to the large number of applicants, Blue Cross Blue Shield is behind in getting out invoices and ID cards to the insured.
If you are still waiting for your ID cards, we have contacted Blue Cross Blue Shield and they have advised that customers should start receiving their ID cards in the mail by mid to late January.
If you are one of the many people who have not heard from Blue Cross Blue Shield or received a bill, don’t fret. Blue Cross Blue Shield has extended the deadline to pay the first months premium until January 10th . There are three ways to make your payment: You can call the billing department at 800-792-8595, you can pay by credit card by calling 866-654-8569, or you can mail in your payment at:
