My husband and I recently was scammed into buying healthcare on eHealth due to loss of job & health insurance. The rep. failed to inform us that buying plans individually or family plans are not treated the same as employer issued health plans. We chose Blue Shield of CA due to having Blue shield of CA and Blue Cross Blue shield of Michigan through employers before. We pay $708.00 monthly premium with no assistance from government to reduce... Read more

We lost the doctors we would see for the past 15 years due to the lousy reimbursement policy of Blue Shield. It doesn't pay them what they are worth. Single working Mother, small business owner, self-employed. Purchased PPO gold plan through BS only to have it lumped in with Obama Care in January of 2014. Didn't think a whole lot of it at the time until in February when I came down with shingles and couldn't find a doctor that would take my... Read more

I was on a Blue Shield plan with Covered California until I began Medicare when I turned 65 and enrolled in another Blue Shield plan to supplement Medicare. Blue Shield refuses to acknowledge that I should not be covered by overlapping policies even though overlapping coverage is impossible with Medicare regulations. Blue Shield is billing me for the overlap and is refusing to correct the situation. I will take the company and all the... Read more

dealing with this company - I believe the initials BS were intended. Employees in departments that have the power to deny or approve only have a generic email inbox, this way many different people can work on the same case with no history of what transpires within the company and no one has to be accountable. Lets deny an application during open enrollment for no social being provided and hope the applicant does not have the knowledge that a... Read more

I was admitted to the hospital with chest pain on 3/31/. About a week later (after I was at home) I got a letter form Blue Shield dated 4/1 stating they could not evaluate the claim because I had not yet paid my premium. I checked my credit card statement and Blue Shield's own member portal. Both showed that my payment was made on 3/30, the day BEFORE I was admitted. This is not the first time they have tried to avoid paying a claim by making... Read more

I called BS twice this morning regarding non payment of claims for 2015, after deductible had been met. On both occasions I was put on hold and after about 20 minutes on each call the line was disconnected. I am extremely frustrated and disgusted with their apparent disrespect of subscribers time and concerns.

Blue Shield of Ca has denied my doctors request 4 different times in 6 months for HARVONI. I have cirrhosis of the liver from Hep C and cannot get meds. Blue Shield approved Viekira pak, BUT I cannot take this medicine because there would be a serious reaction with the meds I have been taking for years. There is no other med I can take to replace the meds that cannot be taken with Viekira pak, but there would be no problem taking my meds with... Read more
