What is Healthy Blue Living?

Who is this for?

Michigan Health Insurance - Customer Service - HMO Plans

If you're interested in our employer-sponsored, wellness-based health benefit plan, this will help you understand it better.

The healthier you are, the wealthier you are.

That’s the main idea behind Blue Care Network’s Healthy Blue Living plan. It's Michigan's first wellness-based HMO health care plan. We designed it to give you the knowledge, skills and support to achieve your health goals and earn the benefits: lower deductibles and copays.

Healthy Blue Living

Healthy Blue Living is a participation-based, employer-sponsored plan with two benefit levels: standard and enhanced. To get the enhanced benefits—lower deductibles and copays—you have to meet the plan requirements.

These requirements are based on working to meet health goals in six areas:

  • Tobacco Use
  • Weight (body mass index below 30)
  • Blood pressure (below 140/90)
  • Cholesterol (LDL below target; may be <100, <130 or <160)
  • Depression (in full remission)
  • Blood sugar (at or below target)

Why did we pick these? They have a huge impact on your health and health care costs for everyone. Managing them also reduces your chances of developing one or more chronic or disabling diseases.

You can still be in the plan if you don’t want to participate in the requirements, but you’ll get the standard benefit level, with higher out-of-pocket costs.

You can learn more about the plan in the Healthy Blue Living Member Guide (PDF).
