January 2012 Update
We're excited to offer you a new way to grow and retain your book of business. Simply Shield -- our redesigned small group portfolio -- offers your clients a simple approach to healthcare coverage.

To make way for our new Simply Shield portfolio, we are streamlining our plan offerings by withdrawing many of our plans from the previous portfolio. To learn more about renewals and withdrawals, your clients' next steps, and how you can assist them, please visit our Renewal and Withdrawal Center.

Please note: If your client currently offers one of Blue Shield's plan packages – PlanSelectSM, Suite Deal, or Dual Choice – they may have some plans without enrollees, and those plans may no longer be available at their next renewal. Only those medical plans included in the new Simply Shield portfolio will be available for enrollment at their next renewal date.

Learn more about the offering. If you have questions, please contact your Blue Shield account manager.
