Retaining your clients

January 2014 health reform changes impact more than just the uninsured. Current Blue Shield IFP members enrolled in non-grandfathered plans will have their plans withdrawn effective January 1, 2014 and, in most cases, we've recommended a new plan for 2014. Learn more about what's changing, and how we'll communicate with your clients.
