Priority Health adds counties
The Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation has granted permission to Priority Health to offer its Health Maintenance Organization product in Monroe and Genesee counties.
Coverage also was expanded to all of Shiawassee and Lapeer counties, now allowing Priority Health to sell HMO coverage in 66 of 68 counties in the Lower Peninsula. Only Iosco and Oscoda counties are excluded.
“With this expansion, our HMO product covers all of Southeast Michigan and we have expanded our reach in mid-Michigan,” said Mike Koziara, vice president for the eastern region.
The health insurer, owned by Spectrum Health, has more than 500,000 members in commercial and government plans. It employs 1,000 people with offices in Farmington Hills, Grand Rapids, Holland, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Saginaw and Traverse City.
