2021 BCBSM & PSI Health Insurance Information Sessions
Do you have questions about the insurance plans and what it covers? You’re in luck as GSG hosted two Health Insurance Information Sessions this past September.
For BCBSM, we talked with Darrin Eaton (Client Engagement Manager) & Tamara Yates (Group Service Liaison) and for PSI, we chatted with Chris Wacker (Regional Accounts Director). We discussed insurance benefits, things to watch out for in policies, claims process/procedures among other things, and also answered preselected questions from the audience. Check the recordings below.
2020 BCBSM Health Insurance Information Session
GSG hosted an Open Health Forum on November 18th with our new Student Insurance providers, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM). Representatives of BCBSM talked about the student insurance, including understanding health insurance terminology, how to utilize the BCBSM coverage and process a claim, and understanding the coverage proved by the student insurance.
