WMHIP BCBS Enhanced COVID-19 Benefits
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is taking steps to waive cost sharing for two very important benefits in the WMHIP health plans in order to assist employees as we all work to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Enhanced COVID-19 Benefits:
- COVID-19 testing – WMHIP-BCBS is waiving cost sharing for the COVID-19 diagnostic lab testing.
- Telehealth visits – WMHIP-BCBS is waiving cost-sharing when members use Blue Cross Online Visits or when they use telehealth medical visits with a physician in the BCBS PPO network, the visits will be 100% covered.
These changes are temporary until April 30. BCBS will monitor the situation to see if an extension is needed.
