Lost funds

PLATTSBURGH — Nearly 12,000 individuals and companies in New York state have forgotten about $1.25 million in checks issued by Excellus Health Plan, including under its Excellus BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) name. This is in the form of unclaimed checks issued in 2008 to members and providers.

A complete list of names of people and companies with checks to claim is available on the company's website at You can also see the legal notices in many newspapers across the state.

Every year, the state requires insurers like Excellus BCBS to make a list of unclaimed checks that are at least three years old. The names are then placed in advertisements in local papers in an attempt to find the people who have money to claim.
