Health Insurance Taxes and Fees Estimator

Who is this for?

Michigan Health Insurance - Customer Service - Calculators and Tools

You can use this tool to see a breakdown of the federal and state taxes and fees listed on your bill or quote from us.

The estimator shows you the taxes and fees that go into that amount. For more information, see our Health Insurance Taxes and Fees FAQ for Individuals. Please note: the tool gives estimates for taxes and fees on your medical coverage only. If you have dental or vision coverage, it won't be included in the estimate.

These federal and state taxes and fees don't apply to Medigap plans.

Who can use this tool?

The estimator will be helpful for individuals and families that buy their own health insurance from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan or Blue Care Network.

How do I use it? 

  1. Select your insurance company. If you have insurance through both, use the estimator once for each account. Taxes and fees are different for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network.
  2. Select a year. You can get an estimate using your bill from the previous year, but you'll get the best results using this year's information or quote. The taxes and fees will be part of your monthly payment.
  3. Where it says "Total Monthly Premium," enter the total amount due from your bill or quote. Subtract past due amounts or other charges and credits not related to your monthly bill for the most accurate results.

Tip: You can get helpful information while using the estimator. When you see a black circle with a question mark on it, just click.
