New info: Blue Shield update as of 10/16/17

Yesterday, we spoke with a Blue Shield representative to try to clear up the confusion about Blue Shield’s new plan. Here is what we were told:

ALL BLUE SHIELD MEMBERS WILL BE SWITCHED TO THE NEW TRIO PLAN BY DEFAULT.
This will happen on January 1, 2018. If you wish to stay in your current Access+ plan, you must fill out an open enrollment form in October.

The Trio plan is slightly cheaper than Access+, although all rates will go up January.
View new 2018 rates.

The Trio network is slightly smaller than the Access+ network. It includes UCSF, but not St. Luke’s, for example. The doctors and specialists you see under your current plan may not be available under Trio. If you switch to Trio and your primary care physician is not included in the Trio network, you will have to choose a new doctor.

Check if your doctors are covered under the two plans:

• For Trio HMO: blueshieldca.com/triosfhss
• For Access+: blueshieldca.com/networkhmo

HSS is holding an informational event where you can ask questions in person. They will make presentations and answer questions about all the HSS Plans. The event is:

Wednesday, 10/18/17, 5:00 – 7:30 pm
Koret Auditorium in the SF Main Library
Please call 415-229-6739 to register for this event.

You can contact Blue Shield at blueshieldca.com/sfhss or call 855-747-5800.
You can also contact HSS at www.myhss.org or call 415-554-1750.

Resources for those affected by wildfires

Our hearts go out to all who are affected by the tragic wildfires. Here are some resources:

  • Through its chapters in the North Bay and San Francisco, our community ally Jobs with Justice is facilitating support for victims of the devastating North Bay fires. They have complied some detailed ways you can support the ongoing relief and recovery efforts in the North Bay, with a focus on the needs of immigrant workers, union members and other vulnerable community members.
  • California Federation of Teachers may be able to provide financial assistance if you have have been impacted. Please contact CFT Deputy Executive Director Sarah Callahan at (510)523-5238 or scallahan@cft.org.
  • If you live in an area that is at risk of fire, text your zip code to 888777 in order to receive emergency alerts such as notices to evacuate.
  • A coalition of immigrant service providers and advocates have launched the UndocuFund for Fire Relief in Sonoma County with a mission to provide direct support to undocumented children, families, and communities affected by the fires in Sonoma County. Donations to support Sonoma County’s undocumented children, families, and communities can be made online at www.UndocuFund.org. Checks can be made payable and mailed to UndocuFund for Fire Relief, c/o GCIR, P.O. Box 1100, Sebastopol, California 95473-1100. All donations are tax- deductible to the extent allowed by law.
