Two Important Updates

Group Enrollment Deadline Clarification

EmblemHealth's underwriting guidelines allow small groups to enroll until December 23, 2013, in one of our new plans for January 1, 2014 coverage.

You recently received an email from us stating that small groups have until
December 15, 2013, to enroll. Encouraging groups to enroll by December 15 provides for a more positive member and group experience. This extra time is used to update our systems; and members will benefit from the receipt of accurate ID cards by their coverage start date.

"Rediscover What Care Feels Like" Campaign

This week, many of your clients will receive our first quarter rate sheet in the mail along with this cover letter, encouraging them to contact their broker to learn more about our new small group plan options for 2014.

This communication was sent to downstate small groups whose current EmblemHealth plan is scheduled to be discontinued December 31, 2013, because it does not meet ACA requirements.

EmblemHealth is excited about our new small group products that meet not only the requirements of the ACA, but also the needs and budgets of small businesses. For more information, or to begin enrolling your clients today, visit our secure broker portal at or call your EmblemHealth representative.

Please DO NOT respond to this message. If you have any questions about this communication, please speak with your Account Representative.
