How do I enroll in a UAW Trust Medicare plan?
You have a few options to choose from when it comes to your Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan health plan. Enrolling is easy, but it helps to do a little homework first.
Before you enroll
Ask yourself these questions. They can help you decide on a plan.
- Are you eligible for Medicare? If you're not sure, learn more about who is eligible for Medicare.
- Is the plan you want offered where you live? Our Medicare Advantage PPO and Traditional Care Network plans are available in every county in Michigan. The BCN AdvantageSM plan covers 68 counties in Michigan. This service area map shows if your county is covered. BCN Advantage Service Area Map (PDF)
- Can I switch plans? As long as it's been at least 12 months since you last changed your plan, you can change your plan any time of the year. You can make changes sooner than that if you have certain life events, like getting married or moving.

Your out-of-pocket costs will be lower if you choose a network provider. To find a network provider, visit Find a Doctor.
Limitations, copayments and restrictions may apply. You must continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium. Consult your Evidence of Coverage for specific information about your benefits and cost-sharing responsibilities.
