Blue Cross / Blue Shield Complaint - Blue Cross Cancels Policy March 1 and Notifies of this April 20th!
On April 20th a letter was written to me to advise me that my Medical Coverage with Blue Cross Blue Shield under Cobra was cancelled as of March 1, 2010. As you can see, this is 6 weeks later! In the last six weeks I have had several expensive tests at the hospital and have seen two specialist for a medical condition. All of the tests were pre-approved by Blue Cross during the past 6 weeks. I was not aware that my coverage was cancelled, even though they accepted my payments and cashed my checks, and now I will be responsible for thousands of dollars in medical bills.
This is an atrocity! Something must be done about Blue Cross Blue Shield and they need to be held accountable for their lack of service to their customers.
I lost my job a year ago, and having insurance has been critical to my survival. What now?
