Blue Cross Blue Shield (Anthem) Settlement Notice

Update as of May 13, 2021

You may have received a message from Blue Cross Blue Shield in reference to a settlement notice last month. This is a legitimate settlement case for certain Anthem members covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance plans during the timeframe of February 2008 through October 2020.

Next Steps:  To see if you qualify for settlement, please file a claim online: The deadline to submit claims is November 5, 2021.

If you do nothing, you will remain a member of the Settlement Classes; however, if you are entitled to share in the Settlement proceeds, you will not get a payment.

Claim timeframe:  this case may include eligible coverage/plans back to February 2008. So, we encourage you to locate historical information prior to beginning the claim.
