Why am I unable to view costs if Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan submitted a mainframe cost report?
The most common reason is Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is not designated as the vendor to report costs. After a plan sponsor's application is approved at CMS, six steps must be completed. Steps 4 and 5 require input of BCBSM as the vendor to report costs, in addition to assigning vendor ID A0013 to each BCBSM unique benefit option identifier.
Designees assigned the report cost privilege will also have the ability to view cost data for the benefit options to which they are associated.
