Question: I enrolled in a Blue Shield Silver PPO plan on Covered California’s website. That was 3 weeks ago. I can’t get through to Blue Shield on the phone. How can I make my payment to Blue Shield?
Answer: Your Blue Shield payment can be made online. To make your Blue Shield payment online, go to http://service.healthplan.com/blueshieldca/binder You will land on a login page that looks like this (click image to enlarge). You don’t have a login and password yet so you must register first . If you get this result , it means your application is not in their system. Blue Shield expects by January 3rd, 2014, to have everyone who applied by the Dec 23rd, 2013, enrollment deadline to be processed. Here is a direct number for Blue Shield (855) 836-9705. Hopefully you will get the account registration screen where you will create a username and password. Once the registration is complete, you’ll move to the payment screen where you should see the exact amount of net premium due . You can relax now, all that remains is is creating a payment account either electronic debit (EFT) or credit card (CC). Print the confirmation page and you’re done.
