Blue Cross Blue Shield Customers
In 2017, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota (BCBS) is not selling Blue Cross individual health insurance plans in the state—both inside and outside of MNsure. (The company’s Blue Plus plans are still available in 2017.)
March 1 was the deadline to enroll through a special enrollment period (SEP) for the loss of your BCBS plan. If you missed this deadline you will have to wait until the next open enrollment period to enroll in private coverage unless you have a major life event that qualifies you for a SEP.
For more details including SEP deadlines and coverage start dates, see the Guide to Special Enrollment Period.
