Blue Cross Blue Shield & Blue Dental Programs (BCBSM) 

Background
MML Employee Benefits Services began in 1987 as a program designed to facilitate the daily administration of municipal Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Dental programs, which the Michigan Municipal League exclusively endorses.

The Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Dental programs are cosponsored by the Michigan Townships Association.

Eligibility

Members of the Michigan Municipal League and/or the Michigan Townships Association are welcome to participate. Authorities created by these members and that are still classified as being a part of the governing body are generally eligible.

Cost

None. There are no additional charges added to MML Employee Benefits Services members’ premiums or rates for this service.

Agents

The participating municipal entity is free to use the licensed agent of their choice to represent them. To become participants, the municipality need only ask the agent involved to enroll them in the Michigan Municipal League’s BCBSM program.

Services

All billing and administrative services for your group are handled directly by BCBSM.

Programs

Municipalities with negotiated contracts are not limited by a preselected menu of program choices whether or not they are currently with BCBSM. Newly enrolled employers or units not subject to bargaining may choose any of BCBSM’s program for which it is eligible. Existing BCBSM members coming into MML Employee Benefits Services may keep their same program, or, if they are not subject to bargaining, they may change to another program.

Claims

MML Employee Benefits Services does not handle claims. The responsibility for all aspects of the claim process belongs with BCBSM. Assistance with claim problems is greatly facilitated, however, by the Dedicated Association Servicing Unit at 1.800.432.9881.

Rating

The BCBSM Public Sector Rating System applies to all MML Employee Benefits Services business with less than 100 employees. Any group with a SIC number designating it as a public entity will be rated on this basis by BCBSM regardless of where the group obtains its health coverage. Likewise, any BCBSM programs offered by other Associations or plans for which a municipality may be eligible can be matched by MML Employee Benefits Services.

Statistics

Exclusively endorsed by the Michigan Municipal League, the BCBSM programs provide health and dental coverage to several hundred municipalities across the state.
