Update: 2018 Small Group Packages on NYS Health Exchange

In June, we announced SimplyBlue Plus Gold 9 would retire from the NY State of Health Marketplace and that groups/members would automatically transition to Silver 2.

We have since received a request from the NYS Department of Financial Services asking that groups and members with Gold 9 transition to Gold 6. In order to offer groups/members currently in Gold 9 a comparable Gold offering, SimplyBlue Plus Gold 6 will be available on the NY State of Health Marketplace in 2018.

Update: Recommended package for 2018

Availability Retiring Package Recommended Package
On Exchange SimplyBlue Plus Gold 9 SimplyBlue Plus Gold 6

Groups and members enrolled in this package through the NY State of Health Marketplace (on Exchange) will not have to choose a new product for 2018. The State will automatically transition the Group into this replacement plan and they will be notified of the transition in their Annual Rate Notice. Please contact your account consultant with questions.
