In-Network Benefits

According to the Milliman Research Report (August 13, 2020), 23% of adults 18 or over have a mental health condition or substance use disorder. Consequently, Sanford is now able to serve a wider range of patients in Michigan.


With the increase in substance use in the last year and a half, we have seen a need for more providers in our area to become in-network with HMO insurance products. Blue Care Network has 840,000 members. We feel fortunate we can now serve those members in need of substance use disorder services.
