Please know that BCBS is committed to ensuring FEP members receive their healthcare coverage during the government shutdown. No policies will be cancelled during the shutdown. All processes will return to normal once the government has reopened. If you need to make changes to your policy due to a Qualifying Life Event (QLE) please attempt to utilize the normal process through your payroll office. If that is unavailable to you then please first review changes you can make under a QLE. Then download and complete the SF 2809 form. Finally, fax your completed form to 202-942-1010. If you have any questions or need any assistance in this process, please contact the telephone number on the back of your identification card and indicate you have a QLE and need assistance completing a SF 2809.
Once the government has fully reopened, please have your employing agency complete, sign, date and submit a permanent SF 2809 to ensure your enrollment change has been captured correctly.
