As previously communicated, the in- and out-of-network deductibles for the BluePortfolio Plus 100% $1,750 and $3,000 plans are increasing upon the members renewal on or after October 1, 2012. (See chart below.)

However, to make things easier for renewing members who may not have planned for a late-year increase, BCBSAZ will defer the deductible increase until January 1, 2013 for those Blue Portfolio Plus $1,750 and $3,000 members with renewal dates in October, November, or December of 2012. This is a one-time deferral. For 2013, members of these plans will have to satisfy the increased deductible amount ($2,000 or $3,500, as applicable).

BCBSAZ has notified members who are scheduled to renew in 2013 that their deductible will be increasing upon renewal so that they can plan for their 2013 health care expenses.
