Question: I have an Anthem Blue Cross plan through Covered California, but I want to change to a Blue Shield plan outside of Covered California for 2018, since I don’t qualify for premium assistance. Do I have to notify Anthem so that they won’t automatically renew my plan for 2018?
Answer: Yes. It is your responsibility to notify Anthem that you are cancelling your coverage effective 12/31/2017. You must also terminate coverage in your Covered California account. To apply directly to Blue Shield, click here.
