APTA Michigan Meeting with BCBSM

posted: August 21, 2020

APTA Michigan met with BCBSM on August 20 to discuss a variety of issues important to our members and the patients we serve. This was a productive meeting, and we appreciated BCBSM’s transparency and the opportunity to engage in generative dialogue. Several follow-up items were requested by BCBSM, including additional information on direct access and dry needling. The follow-up communications provided by APTA Michigan can be found on our payment resources page HERE.
