Important Reminder About Small Group
Plan Changes

Last week we e-mailed you about the exciting new ACA-compliant small group plans we will be offering starting January 1, 2014. We also notified you about the letters we sent to all small groups, small group subscribers and sole practitioners that informed them their current plans would be discontinuing on December 31, 2013.

The small group Select Care plans that we will offer for the new year are some of the most competitively priced commissionable products in the market. These include our EmblemHealth HMO 40/60 (Gold) plan, our EmblemHealth HMO 35/55 (Silver) plan, and our EmblemHealth HMO HD6300 (Bronze) plan.

The small group Select Care plans will soon be available at

(Read last week's notification.)

Please be reminded that on October 1, 2013, we will be sending discontinuance letters to groups, group subscribers and sole practitioners with a GHI ConsumerDirect high deductible health plan that has a deductible which accrues on a basis other than a calendar year. These letters inform recipients that their plan will be discontinued upon renewal in 2014.

Samples of these letters are provided below:

Recipients of either of these two letters should disregard the earlier discontinuance letter that may have been sent to them last week.
