How is Blue Cross handling the Affordable Care Act requirements around waiting period?

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

The Affordable Care Act requires that employees eligible for health coverage must be able to enroll in health coverage that is effective within 90 calendar days. 

Blue Cross has made changes to our systems to ensure that an employer's waiting period does not exceed 90 calendar days. Employers will be able to establish waiting periods as long as they do not exceed 90 calendar days. Our standard waiting period will continue to be the first of the month following the date of hire. For more information on waiting periods, please see our fact sheet.
