SC BlueCross Teams Helping Consumers in 39 Cities Ahead of Insurance Deadline

March 12, 2014

Columbia, S.C. – South Carolinians will have an opportunity for face-to-face visits with BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina representatives who will travel the state to answer questions and help people sign up for health insurance before open enrollment ends this month.

Representatives will be at CVS/pharmacy stores and at community events where they will answer questions and can enroll people for policies from BlueCross and from BlueChoice® HealthPlan of South Carolina. They also will help determine whether people are eligible for federal subsidies.

“Under the Affordable Care Act, consumers are navigating a shopping experience that is new to many of them. We remind people that there is a federal tax penalty if they don’t sign up, and we urge them not to wait until the last minute to do their research and make their purchase,” said Terry Peace, senior vice president of small group and individual insurance.

“Providing information about new health insurance coverage opportunities is in keeping with our purpose of helping people on their path to better health,” said David Purdy, area vice president for CVS/pharmacy in South Carolina. "We are pleased to partner with BlueCross in our stores this month to help educate patients about their options to enroll in health coverage before the March 31 deadline."

Under the Affordable Care Act, if individuals fail to purchase coverage on or before March 31, they face a federal tax penalty equal to 1 percent of their 2014 household income or a minimum penalty of $95. Here is the schedule where people can find BlueCross representatives:
