Summary Plan Descriptions

Did you know?

Members enrolled in an SBAM-sponsored BCBSM or BCN health plan receive a free SPD!  When your health plan becomes sponsored by SBAM, you’ll gain access to exclusive consolidated billing and customer service through our partner, Nexben.  Your health plan and agent of record remains the same.

Stay Compliant with the DOL

An SPD describes the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and employee under the group benefit plan by providing detailed information about the health plan itself.  SBAM members can simply combine your basic plan information with the legal pages we provide and the SPD document is ready for distribution to your insured employees.  Be sure to also provide your insured employees the Summary of Benefits & Coverage and any other benefit booklets given to you by the carrier.

Use this template for communicating SMM plan changes to employees that don’t require a new SPD.
