Blue Shield extends a flexible payment program in response to COVID-19
Blue Shield announced that they’re supporting customers impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic by continuing their Premium Payment Program. Blue Shield originally announced this program in April and extended it into May, then June. The Blue Shield Premium Payment Plan Program will now continue into July.
Customers must meet and agree to all of the terms and conditions to enroll in the Premium Payment Plan Program to continue coverage and avoid cancellation due to nonpayment. The terms and conditions include the requirement to pay the Total Amount Past Due in full and a minimum payment of 25% of their premiums due as soon as possible, but no later than the due date indicated on the bill.
If a client is canceled for non-payment, they may seek reinstatement through Blue Shield’s existing policies, which could include enrollment into the Premium Payment Plan Program. A notable update to this program is that customers are limited to two months maximum premium deferment.
