Letter from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan

If you receive medical benefits from Blue Cross under NMC’s plan you likely received a letter last week regarding the Physician Qualification Form. The letter has raised many questions and concerns. The HR department has contacted Blue Cross and they will prepare a communication to clarify the intention and specifics behind the letter sometime this week. HR will share the communication when available.

One note to share now is that you are not obligated to participate, nor will you have any changes to your coverage for not completing the Physician Qualification Form. This is intended to be a voluntary part of our Wellness program, and replace the packets you have received in the past.

Please stay tuned for more information and reach out to Hollie DeWalt in HR with any questions.
