How are our directors appointed?
The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan board has 35 members, six of whom are small-group and nongroup subscribers.
- A small-group customer is enrolled in a group with fewer than 150 customers. If you're unsure of your group size, please check with your employer, association or chamber.
- A nongroup customer is enrolled as an individual customer or has group conversion or Medicare Supplemental coverage.
The board also includes representatives of large and medium-group customers, organized labor, health care professionals and public members appointed by Michigan's governor.
Three separate, independent director selection councils representing various member groups identify and appoint people who are qualified and willing to serve as directors, either to fill new terms or vacancies as they occur.
- Council II, the Small-Group Director Selection Council, appoints small-group subscriber board members.
- Council III, the Nongroup Director Selection Council, appoints nongroup subscriber board members.
