DeWITT, N.Y. — Thousands of New Yorkers have yet to cash more than $2.36 million in checks that Excellus BlueCross BlueShield and its parent company issued them in 2012.
Excellus has set up an unclaimed funds web page (excellusbcbs.com/unclaimedfunds) where people can search by their last name to see if they have any uncashed checks with the company. It also offers instructions on how to claim and receive the funds.
“This is money that was paid for claims or refunded premiums,” Jim Reed, regional president of Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, said in the release. “We want to make sure that our members and providers have one more chance to claim it before it goes to the state.”
