BC&BS of Michigan is a very greedy insurance company~ they keep upping there insurance rate and you get less from them very disappointed and I have been with them since I was little and I am now 59 and now that I am on dissablility they continue to line there pockets and think nothing of our treatment, you pay higher amounts just because you live in Michigan~~ for the life of me I can't figure that one out~~ it is so sad that as a person on medicare and disability they can keep doing this to there customers in the last 4 years they have increased there medi gap by 10.00 I know that don't seem like much to most but for me I had to go to a different health care provider for that reason, being that my Disability payments have not increased so i can't no longer afford there program!
