Terminating CC for Medicare?

By on | No Comments

Question: My wife and I have Covered California coverage for 2017. I am listed as “primary subscriber” with Blue Shield. I will turn 65 in Feb 2017 and will be on Medicare, My wife however needs to remain on our CC plan for 2017. What is the best way to terminate my account with CC/Blue Shield since I will start Medicare but not change my wife’s continuation with Covered California, and then list her as primary subscriber after February?

Answer: Login to your Covered California online account and use the “report a change” feature. Under the “Personal Data” tab, go directly to the healthcare section and select “Yes” to receiving medicare benefits under the recipient’s name. The Covered California system will automatically terminate coverage for that subscriber without removing the required household details. The subsidy will automatically adjust for remaining subscribers.
