DETROIT — One of the largest insurers in Michigan is waiving costs tied to the coronavirus.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and the Blue Care Network HMO will cover member co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance for coronavirus testing and treatment, according to the insurer.
Blue Cross said the coverage applies to a mix of plans: commercial PPO, Medicare Advantage PPO and HMO.
“In these incredibly difficult times, if our members contract COVID-19, Blue Cross will stand behind them all the way,” said Daniel Loepp, president and CEO, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
“We want our members to get the care they need to treat COVID-19 successfully, without worrying about the cost.”
The insurer added that its members should "work with appropriate public health authorities before seeking testing for COVID-19."
