Our Total Health Philosophy
Looking for the right health insurance plan can be challenging. Like many businesses across the state of Michigan, your company is probably balancing its financial needs with the interests of your employees and their health care.
At Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network, we have an approach to health care that gives higher quality care, lowers costs and addresses your most challenging issues.
We call it Total Health Engagement. It’s a philosophy that focuses on innovative health insurance plan design, better ways of providing care and dedicated health support. We think this model:
- Builds on the trusted relationship between patients and their doctors
- Rewards doctors for caring about health, not units of service
- Improves health care quality, cost efficiency and outcomes
- Aligns health care plans and programs to people’s needs
