Blue Cross to Administer Disability Income Plan

January 1st, 2004

Effective January 1, 2004 administration and adjudication of new applications for disability benefits will be handled by Blue Cross.

We will continue to use the Case Management Team approach which involves the applicant, a medical consultant, a vocational rehabilitation consultant, the employer and the applicant's personal physician, if necessary.

The MEBP office will continue to collect the necessary information and then forward it to Blue Cross for processing.
