Mich. Health Insurance Companies to Provide Coronavirus Treatment at No Cost to Patients
The Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) says health insurance companies are willing to help with the costs of coronavirus testing and treatments.
The agency received agreements from nearly all of the state’s health insurance companies.
They agreed to waive cost-sharing, including copays, deductibles and coinsurance for COVID-19 testing and treatments.
“Michiganders that are fighting for their lives should not have the extra burden of fighting with their health insurer to cover the costs of their care,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “I am thankful that health insurers agreed to cover Michiganders’ coinsurance, deductibles, and copays as we fight this virus. It’s going to take all of us doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We will get through this together”
The insurers who have agreed to waive cost-sharing are:
- Aetna Better Health of Michigan
- Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Blue Care Network, MI Blue Cross Complete
- HAP, Alliance Health
- Humana Insurance
- McLaren Health Plan
- Meridian Health Plan
- Molina Healthcare Michigan
- Physicians Health Plan (PHP)
