BCBS OF GA, GEORGIA -- I filed for Health Insurance, In mid September, Around the 11 or 12th.
Never heard anything back. On October the lst, I received a letter, Congratulation me that, "I had been accepted", BCBS. The letter stated
that, My application was accepted on 22 September 2010. The letter was dated the 23rd of September and mailed. I recevied it on 1 Oct 2010.
The letter stated I owed 254.00 So I called and made my payment.
A few days later, I got another letter stating, I owe $254.00. I called
and gave them my confromation number. 2 weeks later I got another letter
stating I owed $254.00 due on the 22 Oct 2010. This letter was received on 14 October 2010. So I called again, The first lady I talked to, didn't have a clue. An told me, it was a prorated amount. For the month of October.. Now, My total amount was only $254.00 a month. My policy is for $254.00 a month. She couldn't help me.
The Second lady I talk to, told me It was for September the 22 to October the lst. She told me it, was prorated, for those days.
Now I wasn't notified until, October the 1st, that I even had insurance, with BCBS, but they were wanting me to pay for those days anyway.
I didn't receive, my card until, October the 6, 2010.
Am I the only one, that sees the problem here. I not going to pay you for something I had zero knowledge of having. All they could say is "
We sent the letter"
This is the very reason why the federal government is taking over the insurance industry. And if you think its bad now, wait till they get it.
If I'm having these kind of problems, in the first 2 weeks, just imagine
trying to file a claim. So I cancelled BCBS. I asked the 2nd lady.
"Why didn't the just email me or call me to notify me about the start date?" She said, "it was against policy, for the to call a customer"
Guess what? She called me a few hours later asking me about my policy.
What a joke!
