Just FYI, if you are currently covered on a non-grandfathered Blue Shield Life & Health PPO plan and have received the letter offering to extend the plan until March 31, 2014, you as the member must call into to Blue Shield by December 7th to elect the extension of the plan.
Blue Shield has set the requirement that only the member may elect the extension and only by contacting Blue Shield directly in order to ensure compliance with certain legal issues involved in the extension.
No one else, including your agent, can do this for you. Blue Shield is very strict on this requirement.
