Dear Physician Organization and Medical Care Group Business Administrator:
The Oxford school incident has had a significant impact on our members. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network have been working with first responders to assist our members. We recognize that the shock waves of this tragedy have been felt across the state and combined with the approaching holiday season and the ongoing pandemic, your physicians likely have patients who could use behavioral health services.
We created the attached provider alert listing behavioral health resources to share with our providers. Please forward this to your practices so they can assist their patients who need additional support. We’re also posting an alert on web-DENIS to share this information.
Thank you for the ongoing care and support you and your physicians provide to our members.
William Beecroft, M.D., D.L.F.A.P.A.
Medical Director, Behavioral Health
