LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — The state has reached agreements with nearly all of Michigan’s health insurance companies to waive all co-pays, deductibles and coinsurance for COVID-19 treatment.
According to the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services, the following companies have agreed to waive cost-sharing:
- Aetna Better Health of Michigan
- Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Blue Care Network, MI Blue Cross Complete
- HAP, Alliance Health
- Humana Insurance
- McLaren Health Plan
- Meridian Health Plan
- Molina Healthcare Michigan
- Physicians Health Plan

Consumers with questions about their coverage are told to contact their health plan directly.
Those with individual and group health plans will not be charged cost-sharing for COVID-19-related medical treatment.
On Thursday, Priority Health said everyone covered under its commercial, individual, Medicaid and Medicare plans can get the testing and treatment for COVID-19 with no out-of-pocket health insurance costs through June 30. More information can be found online.
“I am thankful that health insurers agreed to cover Michiganders’ coinsurance, deductibles, and copays as we fight this virus. It’s going to take all of us doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We will get through this together,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said in a news release Friday.
