At your renewal with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas or Illinois, your company is eligible to make any changes to your policy. It is important to be aware of the strict deadlines BCBS enforces during your renewal period and open enrollment.
If you're an employer and you want to change your company's plan(s):
If you want to make a plan change, the deadline to submit any changes is 30 days before your renewal date. For example, if your renewal is 7/1, your plan change must be submitted by 5/31. You can make these changes on your SimplyInsured renewal dashboard.
Note: It's always good to submit your plan changes sooner than 1 month before your renewal to give our team time to submit your paperwork to BCBS.
If you're an employee and you want to make enrollment changes:
Your open enrollment is the 30-day window before your renewal date. You can make changes at any time during this window. For example, if your renewal is 7/1, you have until the last weekday of June to make any adjustments to your coverage. You can make any enrollment changes on your SimplyInsured dashboard.
Note: Since insurance carriers are closed on weekends, you must make any changes by the last weekday of the month before your renewal.
