2013 Closed and Retiring Products
We continue to be committed to a multi-year approach to support products that comply with health care reform, offer contemporary and innovative plan designs, and simplify plan selection.
Some of your groups may receive a notice from Excellus BlueCross BlueShield explaining that products we currently offer are scheduled to be retired effective on 1/1/13. This notice will mail by mid-July.
It is possible these groups may inquire regarding this notice. We encourage you to review the 2013 closed and retiring products' web page to become familiar with the information being sent to your groups.
Retired products are those products that are no longer offered. When we retire plans, we recommend replacement products that most closely match the benefits of the retired product. Companies interested in products other than the replacement products should contact their Account Consultant. These products are retiring effective December 31, 2012.
Closing a product is an indication that a product will be retired in the future. This means that customers have time to communicate with employees, identify their needs, and choose newer innovative products to best fit their needs.
- Will no longer be sold to new groups
- Cannot be modified for an existing group
