New Business Submission Deadline for September 1, 2021 Effective Dates

Sunday August 8, 2021

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.
