Give your employees something your health plan alone can’t – financial security.

Rising deductibles are costing employees their peace of mind, to the point where some avoid care completely. That’s why we’ve partnered with HealthBridge – the first solution of its kind.  *HealthBridge is free to any SBAM member enrolled in our sponsored Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Michigan or Blue Care Network health plan for the first two years, then in year three the cost is significantly reduced per employee per month rate.

HealthBridge is an employee benefit that complements your current health plan. When your employee or covered dependent has a medical claim covered by their health plan, HealthBridge pays providers directly for the patient portion on their behalf. HealthBridge then sends members a consolidated monthly statement, plus friendly repayment terms, giving your people financial security and flexibility to pay for their portion of care.

HealthBridge is currently only available in the following areas:

  • Mid-Michigan – Sparrow Health System, Lansing
  • Southwest Michigan – Bronson Healthcare, Kalamazoo & Battle Creek
  • Upper Peninsula – Dickinson County Marshfield Health Clinic, Iron Mountain
  • West Michigan – Mercy St. Mary’s and University of Michigan Health West, Grand Rapids; North Ottawa Community Health System, Grand Haven and Mercy Muskegon, Muskegon
