It’s important to research and have your information ready before calling to enroll in a health plan. To reduce consult time, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan encourages consumers to take the following five steps:
  1. Determine subsidy eligible by going to www.bcbsm.com/subsidy or text “4subsidy” to 222-752 and follow the prompts.
  2. Go to BCBSM.com to shop and compare.
  3. Have primary care doctor(s) name and address handy.
  4. Be prepared with income information, birth date(s) and Social Security Numbers of everyone who will be on the plan.
  5. Set aside 30 minutes or more for the call to make sure consumers get all their questions answered and can complete an application.
Consumers can call a health plan advisor at 1-855-890-2410, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. or connect with an agent. Photo Credit: Garry Knight
