Providers should know their participation status in new BCBSM products

It is vital that providers and offices be aware of their participation status in these new BCBSM products.

Here are three important points to keep in mind:

-Other than eligible emergency services and accidental injuries, members who have enrolled in a Metro Detroit EPO plan do not have coverage if they visit a doctor that is outside the network.
-Be sure to always refer members to health care providers that are in the Metro Detroit EPO network. You can use the Find a Doctor search tool on to verify that a doctor or hospital is in this network.
-Be sure your office staff knows if you are in this localized network.
