Does Excellus BlueCross BlueShield owe you money? The company says more than 10,400 individuals and companies in New York are owed $1.41 million.
Where does this money come from? "This is money that was paid for claims or refunded premiums. If the money remains unclaimed it will go to the state," said Christopher C. Booth, president and chief executive officer. "It rightfully belongs to our members or providers and we want to make sure they have one more chance to claim it before it goes to the state."
BlueCross BlueShield says every year they look back and make a list of unclaimed checks that are at least three years old. The names are then placed in the ads in local papers in an effort to find the people who have money to claim. If the money is not claimed by August 31, it is turned over to the state comptroller.
