Great opportunity to keep your current benefits on your plan renewal! 
For a limited time, you can keep your current benefits and don’t have to move to an Affordable Care Act (ACA) plan until January 1, 2018. 
An extended transitional policy gives you the chance to keep the plan you have – while you evaluate your options under the ACA guidelines. Moving to a January 1, 2018, renewal date allows you to: 
Avoid community rating, which could cause your rates to increase.
Maintain your current benefit plan and not be forced to move to an ACA plan.
 
Here are some important guidelines: 
If we don’t hear from you: We’ll assume you have chosen a rate extension for your current (non-ACA) plan, and we’ll move your renewal to January.
If you want to keep your current renewal month: We must receive a signed Renewal Rate Confirmation page by the 15th of the month prior to your renewal. The Renewal Rate Confirmation page is included in your renewal packet.
If you change your medical renewal date and you have a dental, vision, life and/or disability plan: All renewal dates will move to your new medical renewal date.
You must have a medical plan to be eligible for the extension.
 
The enclosed flier has full details of the ACA extended transitional policy. It shows the potential advantages of switching to a January renewal. You’ll also learn how adding dental, vision, life and disability plans to your current Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia (BCBSGa) health plan can: 
Save you money,
Make administration easier, and
Provide health and wellness opportunities.
 
Please note, not all employers will benefit from changing their anniversary date. You should discuss this option with your legal or tax advisors before choosing it. This does not pertain to groups with specialty-only coverage.
