Electronic Enrollment
Electronic enrollment can help employers control and reduce administrative costs. Blue Shield accepts two forms of electronic enrollment:
  1. Direct submission: For companies that want to submit data directly to Blue Shield.
  2. Web-based enrollment. For clients who need a robust online benefit administration solution.
Direct Submission
Blue Shield direct submission is a customizable solution that allows employers or third-party benefits administrators to electronically submit enrollment data directly to Blue Shield at no extra charge.
Direct submission may be a good solution for employers who:
  1. Have their own human resource systems with employee enrollment data
  2. Already have arrangements with other Web-based enrollment vendors
Direct submission offers:
  • A dedicated implementation team to ensure smooth enrollment
  • A choice of file formats including American National Standards Institute’s (ANSI) 834, Blue Shield’s own custom format or other custom files
  • Secure enrollment data submission with Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).
To use direct submission, a group needs:
  • Enrollment data in one of our many acceptable file formats
  • Electronic file transmission capabilities through SFTP
  • Ability to submit files early in the enrollment process
  • A technical and human resources point of contact for Blue Shield
