Premera Blue Cross will be sunsetting Small Group Marketplace (SGMP) on July 31, 2021. Through July 20th producers can submit group applications via SGMP for August 1, 2021 effective dates. For September 1, 2021 effective dates and beyond, group applications can only be submitted via Connexion One Platform. For producers that use SGMP, your book of business will carry over from SGMP to Connexion One Platform.
One Platform is the new quote-to-card solution that streamlines the end-to-end process for producers and groups. Some of its key benefits include:
- Submit groups for enrollment online
- Pay bills online
- View side by side plan comparisons
- Quote medical and ancillary from a single census
- Receive expedited processing due to integration with Premera systems. Groups receive cards in 7-10 days on average.
Please note that Connexion One Platform will be mandatory to use for January 1, 2022 group application submissions. By end of day, Friday July 9th, all producers will have received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with the link to get started. Training materials can be found here.
