New BCN rider for large groups in the Upper Peninsula will limit coverage outside Michigan
Effective Oct. 1, 2021, Blue Care Network large group plans will require a mandatory rider for group customers with locations in the Upper Peninsula.
The rider will limit coverage outside Michigan to urgent, emergency or accidental services. Non-urgent and nonemergency BlueCard® travel coverage outside of Michigan won't be covered.

The rider will be added to all existing large groups upon renewal Oct. 1, 2021, and after and to new large group businesses upon the effective date of their plans.
For members with these riders, we'll issue new member ID cards:
