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 bcbsm.com to verify that a doctor or hospital is in this network.
-Be sure your office staff knows if you are in this localized network.
