From reading the proposed plan of distribution it seems the default option allocates 15% to you and 85% to your employer.
I’m opting out. What they did caused people to go without healthcare and be penalized by the government and some even died or had permanent medical problems from lack of care, not to mention how some employers gamed the system to end up paying us less and lay people off so they could be below 15 employees.
We lost our doctors, we lost our insurance plans.
Don’t let them off the hook this easy, a few billion is a joke to them. They need to be found guilty. Don’t sell yourself out for a couple dollars. They will just keep doing what they have been doing. This is not the final chapter in this. There will be better lawsuits, this is the simp lawsuit to get them off the hook.
And then what? Are you filling your own lawsuit?
Go ahead and opt out, its more money for the rest of us to share 😉
But if you really think the settlement is insufficient, there are instructions on how you can write a letter to the court, explaining why you think it is insufficient and what you think the damages should be. I doubt you can get another lawyer take the case for you, individually. Objecting, and not following through is just letting them off the hook.
These class action settlements seem to take years, and you may eventually get a pittance, like $15 dollars.
I agree… I got a settlement years ago for a Costco settlement. Took years to get it. When it finally came, it was a check for 78 cents !
Hahaha ha, I’m in tears! WTF is wrong with this picture. .78 cents, the cost of the paper, envelope, stamp, and ink is more than that. Not to mention the wages of the person that put it together. If you read the writing it states that the lawyers fees can’t exceed 25 percent on this one, but that’s a hell of alot of cash for them. They’re the true winners in all this and as always it’s a shame. Kudos to the ambulance chasers!
Hmm…need a lawyer just to read it…..why do they make it so complicated. That said, this will likely amount to a few bucks as usual. We paid into this insurance for 12 years and so a few bucks is hardly even worth filling out the form. The lawyers and the Employers will be getting the bulk of the money.
This was set up for lawyers to get money and the 2.7 that was settled for was a joke so basically is what happens here everybody gets a nice lump sum but the people it hurt, again 2.7 billion is a joke for what they take in so they will still be laughing all the way to the bank.
Lawyer David Boies is involved…it’s a lawyer bailout scheme…
My husband and I had BCBS through his employer (IRS) for many years..covering our family of 5. I am in agreement with most of you. This is not enough. We will get $10.00 or $15.00 if that. Opting out.
Way too much trouble to go back to 2008 and check Ins and Groups up to 2020.
you dont have to do that. With the default setting it does the calculations for oyu.
I would still get it even if you just donate the money.
why should we get this small amount if they have really done something that has cost people their health and their lives… I guess if it did not cost me or my husband our health or our lives, we really dont have an axe to grind,,, and I doubt we would hire our own attorney to sue BCBS ourselves…. but I dont want to see them get away so easily… Full disclosure_I worked the trade association (BCBSA) for 9 years, a few of which are part of the timeline for this suit….
Will opt out. What a joke… pennies in reperations for years of B.S. with this stupid company….We no longer pay for health insurance… true freedom… all a shell game anyway…. eat right, sleep, pray, exercise, and stay away from evil… thats god’s plan. Healthcare is an evil money making machine… scare tactics and bs treatments.. all to make billions…
“an evil money making machine… scare tactics and bs treatments.. all to make billions…” you mean like religion?
Um, you do realize the same holds true for religion, right? How much is the Catholic Church worth? How many mega church pastors fly around in private jets and live in mansions, while begging their parishioners for money? It’s disgusting.
When talking about the church you can’t put everyone in the same boat. Yes there are a lot of false doctrine being preach which is religious but the true church have a relationship with God. It seems to be an excuse a lot of people gravitate to. Seek God yourself and he he will direct your path. Don’t put everyone in the same boat. At the end of the day money should be the last thing on anyone mind during these last and evil days. Seek ye the Kingdom of Heaven and repent because Christ is coming and he coming soon.
God bless y’all soul spirit and hearts to receive this message.
AMEN! YOU ARE SO RIGHT. WE NEED TO READY WHEN HE RETURNS
The question asking the start date and end date of BCBS coverage is confusing. Such dates are not shown on my ID card. I have had BCBS Medicare Supplement coverage for many years and I have no idea when my coverage started. Please advise how to handle that question.
If you have bank statements, just check your yearly ledger for checks made payable to BC/BS. Or….check your Fed tax returns for any medical claims or coverage which will show your group number and I.D. If you keep good records, it is easy.
I don’t believe Medicare supplemental is included as I entered my info and it stated invalid. Prior to Medicare my coverage was accepted.
Actually I checked with the settlement group and Medicare Supplement IS covered. I filed a clam for my wife and I with no problem.
I don’t remember when I had this. I had to pay out of pocket when my husband went on Medicare. How can I determine a timeline?
seems like people will get short changed ,If 100mil is in the group only law firms will get any money
going through old records and filling out the form is not worth 10.00 or 15.00 LOL if it will even be that much. Would be nice if they gave back at least half of all the money paid into the premiums….Once again, the little person, the person that paid the price will be shafted AGAIN….pay the people that paid the premiums before all the suits get paid and see how they like that…
take the money and play the lottery. You might be better off.
I paid over 1000.00 each month for years. Self employed! Wonder if I’d even get anything back!!!
Do I have to go back through the years I had it and document all the premiums?
Reading the terms of the payout: “Claims will not be paid if the value is equal to or less than $5.00”.
So – it’s really in their interest to get as many people as possible to file claims. The more people; the smaller the shares, if they can get people’s shares under $5 (which – I don’t think I’ve ever gotten more than $5 from a Class Action; and – cashing those checks for $1.50 are a little silly), so they just get to keep your share. Win!
We are surrounded by cheats, liars, vultures and buzzards.
SOOO many people in the class action. You will only get a very small amount and lawyers get everything. They are right. So BCBS has been good for us. Do not like to know they have been bad for others but it happens with anything. We have worked all of our entire lives and BCBS has been there for us. Things do not always work out. Lawyers are just doing their jobs….Money finders.
i had most of my records going back to 2008. i am guessing 99% of people do not have subscriber ID and group ID for all years. Disgusting the way these things always play out. I do not see any estimated pay out. I can assure you it won’t be a penny on the thousands of what I paid in.
I have gotten pennies before for settlements as well but when Wells Fargo lied and basically stole my house, I got several settlements. One 6,000, one 1500 and one the last one just in December was just like this on a postcard and I filled it out anyway expecting nothing. I got $600! And this was 11 years after the fact. Now granted I lost a lot more than this settlement is about, but I am filling it out because you never know it might be worth the small effort to respond. Beggars can’t be choosers and my butt is poor!
That is realⅼy attention-grabbing, You are an overly skilled blogger.

your magnificent post. Aɗditionally, I’ve shared үour websitе

This is not worth the privacy violation. My info was needlessly shared with the law-firm and the class administrator (JNDLA). I did not authorize it I had BCBS for a total of two months though my employer. I paid in maybe $200 total. Fifteen percent will be $30 before the lawyers get 25%, and JNDLA gets a cut. I am looking at maybe $20 at best.
I contacted the law-firm and told them that I will be objecting and filing appeals if my name is not removed. After about two weeks, I contacted JNDLA, and verified that my name no longer appears on the case.
Here we have yet another example of why the US must pursue universal healthcare. I’d so much rather battle improving a universal healthcare system than see the wealth of the working class gobbled by the health insurance moguls and lawyers. Look at the enormous money involved. If we would fix our government to better represent US, we could be re-directing our national wealth to create the greatest healthcare system in the world.
Obamacare is one of the reasons this is all so expensive.
We were self employed for 20 years and paid our own BCBS @ $250 a month in 2010.
As soon as the ACA was signed, our premiums doubled to almost 600 a month.
By 2012 when the ACA was fully implemented, our premium increased to $1138 a month.
At which time we cancelled it. We then paid a yearly fine of almost $1000 for having no insurance!!
We were and still are, healthy, no pre-existing conditions and take no medications.
We still work and take care of ourselves, but the universal healthcare, UN affordable care act, they tried to force on us made it too expensive for the ppl like us who paid their way. It is more unfair than BCBS, which was forced into this system, just like the ppl.
For some reason, ppl think the govt should and can do this, but they ALWAYS make things worse and more expensive!
Fact: In its core health insurance business in Michigan, Blue Cross Blue Shield earned $9.1 billion in revenues in 2018.
How is this ‘settlement’ going to discourage BCBS from repeating? When they’ve ALSO accepted no admittance of wrongdoing?
Must be nice, controlling state governments like that. And people want to give MORE power to the states (ahem, corporations). Yeah, that should work out well lol
I don’t understand why I would get anything. My employer paid the premium and I received then benefit. Seems to me my employer got overcharged and should be entitled to this shame.
How would I go about finding out id#’s …etc. It was so long ago?
My husband paid $3000 per year for 12 years. Anyone know what we will get?
Lets look at overcharging employees for insurance to reduce costs for employers and free insurance for themselves this has been a standard for more than 50 yrs that I know of
I GOT A LETTER SAYING I AM PART OF THE GROUP … DOES ANYONE KNOW WHEN WE WILL GET A CHECK?
I WORK FOR LIBERTY COMMONS FOR 10 YEARS AND HAD BCBS I WISH THEY WILL PAY ME MY MONEY THEY TOOK FROM ME,IFEEL LIKE WE WAITED LONG ENOUGH,PAY US NOW.
