To help ensure our members can receive the care they need while continuing to stay safe during this ongoing crisis, MESSA is providing 100% free coverage for telehealth visits with in-network providers through the end of 2020.
MESSA members who have MESSA ABC, Choices or Essentials by MESSA will pay no deductible, no copayment and no coinsurance for virtual medical and mental health visits through Dec. 31, 2020.
There are two ways to access this benefit:
Blue Cross Online Visits: MESSA members and their covered dependents can visit a doctor or a mental health therapist using a smartphone, tablet or computer through MESSA’s partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
Telehealth with current provider: MESSA will fully cover telehealth and online appointments with members’ current in-network doctors and therapists using their providers’ existing telehealth platforms.
MESSA believes the people who care for our kids, our schools and our communities deserve exceptional health benefits and unmatched personal service — and this just one way for us to show it.
Please note that a small number of providers may require upfront payment for telehealth services. In such instances, the member will be automatically reimbursed by MESSA at a later date.
