To enable your group to use the electronic enrollment services, your group needs to designate a Group Benefits Administrator (GBA). The GBA will be the person who has total control and authority to enroll, add and/or delete employees for coverage with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona. Therefore, before proceeding and accepting, the GBA should read the following information carefully.
