COVID-19 testing reminders and at-home testing
We have updated our COVID-19 patient testing recommendations for physicians document to display testing codes more concisely and include information on at-home testing requirements.
As a reminder, all tests must be ordered by a health care provider who determines the test is medically appropriate. The only exception to this is members with Medicare Plus Blue or BCN Advantage coverage can have an initial test without a provider order, per the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services policy. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network recommend that our members go to their health care providers for testing.
