Horizon BCBS wants to remind brokers that the conversion deadline for 3/1/18 renewing groups of off anniversary conversions is Thursday 2/22/18 at 12:00 noon. As always, the conversion deadline for renewing groups or off anniversary conversions is 5 business days prior to renewal at 12:00 noon and should be emailed to nlevinson@fnanj.com. Any groups that are submitted after this deadline will be moved to a 4/1/18 effective date.

Horizon has determined that if a group is accepting their existing ACA plan renewal, no paperwork is necessary. Only if a group is converting to a completely different ACA plan alternative or if they are moving from a pre-ACA plan to an ACA plan would conversion paperwork be necessary. It is important to review the paperwork requirements and process for groups that are converting from a pre-ACA plan to an ACA plan. All groups converting from a pre-ACA to an ACA plan are required to send in, with the conversion form, new 2017 certification paperwork including applicable tax documentation as noted below and waivers. This is for ALL PRE-ACA to ACA CONVERSIONS regardless if they have sent in their certification previously to Horizon and were advised they could renew as is by Small Group certification.
