New Business Submission Deadline for January 1, 2022 Effective Dates

Sunday December 5, 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 5th of the month to accommodate any necessary follow-up requests for missing or incomplete information during this very busy time of year.


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.
