Received my “welcome” packet from Blue Cross today, but not the card. Either of two things could be holding up the card: I didn’t ask for the coverage to start before January, and, Blue Cross staff in Detroit is on strike. I had wondered how long it would take for a decision on my application, due to the strike. Their actuaries must not be in the union.
Present plan is to retain the Blue Cross for a year, then apply to the cheaper company this time next year, using the information folks on this board provided.
