MCC partners with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network to provide four medical plan options that meet the diverse needs of employers and employees. All medical plans align with the teachings and values of the Catholic Church an provide participants with prescription drug coverage and flexibility when choosing providers. All plans cover preventative care at 100% when received in network. Care can generally be received in-network or out-of-network. If you choose to go out-of-network, you will have higher out-of-pocket costs and not all services will be covered.
As a BCBSM or BCN member you will have access to discounts and health and well-being resources on the BCBSM website.
The BCBSM mobile app allows you secure access to your ID card right on your phone as well as providing secure access to view deductibles, check claims, select primary care physician and more. It can also link directly to your Health Care Flexible Spending Account.
Your employer may have medical plan cost sharing for your coverage or for covering family member, or it may be paid 100% by employee. Please check with your employer about which plans you are offered. MCC is not aware of their medical premium cost-share amounts so please check with your employer as to how much you may be asked to contribute towards the cost of medical coverage for yourself and covered family members.

Auto Insurance Reform
Payer Transparency Files
Beginning July 1, 2022, the MCC group health plan, along with most other group health plans and insurance issuers, are required under the Federal Government’s Transparency in Coverage rule to publish provider-specific reimbursement rates in machine-readable files.
This mandate is a building block for future customer-facing mandates, including the Price Transparency Tool and the Advanced Explanation of Benefits.
The information contained in these machine-readable files may be difficult to access without certain technology.
These files may be large and require a computer that can download up to 1TB (terabyte) of data. Most modern hard drives can store half this amount. Depending on your computer's memory and hard drive, attempting to open or download large files may cause instabilities or performance issues resulting in downloads that could take hours, days, or weeks depending on the file size and hard drive combination. For reference: 1TB = 243 high-definition streaming movies (average 2 hours per movie).
The data in the files may not be useful for the average consumer. For example, facilities that are paid based on a percent of charge will not have a dollar amount representing the amount paid for a service.
To access a JSON-formatted index of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s machine-readable files, you will need to copy and paste the URL below into your browser. The machine-readable files will be updated monthly to ensure accuracy of the data and reflect changes in pricing and regulatory requirements.
