Blue Access for Employers

New Functionality and Enhancements Added to Blue Access for EmployersSM

As of March 21, 2014, employer groups can access recent enhancements on the Blue Access for EmployersSM (BAE) site.

Recent enhancements include:

  • The PDF for the premium bill will now be available on the Pay Your Bill section on the BAE home page for groups that have only one bill profile. Employers can click on the PDF icon to immediately open their current bill.
  • For eligible groups, a message has been added to Health Plans under Account Summary. This message applies to groups that have not had their rates updated in 2014. It refers them to the Rates and Exposure table or to their paper bill to view their rates, which includes the Affordable Care Act (ACA) taxes and fees. Note, that these rates will only appear for bills that were processed after February 28, 2014.
  • For IL SHOP exchange groups, BAE has been opened up to allow enrollment and member maintenance for 2014 due to government ACA changes.


If employer groups have any questions regarding these updates, they can contact the BAE Internet Help Desk at 888-706-0583 or their Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois representative.
