”I am a retired federal worker 75 years of age. I am a 100% disabled veteran getting full benefits and treatments @ the VA. My question is: Can I suspend or cancel my Blue Cross Blue Shield policy at this time?

Reg’s Response

You can cancel your Blue Cross/Blue Shield coverage. You could only suspend it if you were covered by Tricare or CHAMPVA.
