Blue Shield Refunds this year

In 2012, Blue Shield of California (BSC) exceeded their 2% profit limit and is now giving back to Blue Shield customers. Beginning in early December The Benefit Trust Fund will issue $1,179,085.65 to those individuals who were enrolled in the CCPOA Medical Plan on August 1, 2012.
This year refunds range from $18.87 to $136.78, and is based on being enrolled in the CCPOA Medical Plan on August 1, 2012. This years refund is much smaller due in large part to BSC aggressively setting a rate that more closely matches the actual cost of health care.
