If you are concerned about possible health care costs if you did need to be tested or treated for COVID-19, please remember that the U-M health insurance plans, including the International Student/Scholar Health Insurance Plan, and the health insurance plans administered by the U-M Benefits Office, such as GradCare, U-M Premier Care, etc. all cover medically necessary health care costs related to testing and treatment for infectious diseases and medical conditions, including COVID-19.
Also, Blue Care Network (BCN) recently announced that the International Student/Scholar Health Insurance Plan will cover medically necessary COVID-19 testing with no deductible or other cost-sharing.

Also, remember that all of these insurance plans also cover flu shots at no cost to you. Although a flu shot will not protect against COVID-19, we are still in the middle of flu season in Michigan, and flu shots are still available.
