New Business Submission Deadline for August 1, 2018 Effective Dates

 Monday July 8, 2019

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network underwriting policy requires a 21-calendar day lead time for new business. However, Action Benefits strongly suggests submitting new business by the 8th of the month to accommodate any necessary follow-up requests for missing or incomplete information.


Healthy Blue Achieve, Healthy Blue Living, and plans with consumer-directed funding arrangements require a 45 day minimum lead time. We recommend submitting these cases 50 days prior to the desired effective date.
