Anthem Blue Cross CA Discontinues Short-Term Policies

Anthem Blue Cross California will discontinue the sale of short-term health insurance policies effective January 1, 2012. Those on existing short-term policies will be able to continue until their normal end date.

This is no surprise as Anthem removed short-term policy applications from our online agent web sites a few months ago.

You may continue to purchase a short-term policy with Anthem Blue Cross in California until the end of the year.

We are discontinuing new sales for all Short Term policies effective January 1, 2012 for California. Applications will continue to be accepted and processed if we receive them by December 30, 2011 for effective dates on or before December 31, 2011
