How can I join the MeridianChoice Provider Network?

In order to ensure and maintain a high level of medical care, all providers are credentialed by MeridianChoice.


Appropriate contracts and applications are provided, along with a questionnaire regarding office function, personnel and the potential capacity to service more enrollees. Both MeridianChoice and the State of Michigan require proof of licensure and appropriate malpractice insurance coverage. In the case of an agreement with a Physician Hospital Organization (PHO) or a Physician Organization (PO) that has already credentialed member providers, MeridianChoice will consider the option of delegating that responsibility to the PHO/PO.


To receive information on becoming a contracted Provider with MeridianChoice, please contact our Provider Services department at 888-773-2647.

What are the member's cost-sharing (copays, coinsurance, deductible)?

Any amount a member pays towards their plan such as copays, coinsurance, and deductibles.

  • Copays: refers to a fixed dollar amount that the member is responsible for paying a Provider after the deductible
  • Coinsurance: means the share of the cost of a covered service that the member is responsible for paying a provider after meeting the deductible. Coinsurance is a percentage of the cost of services. For example, "60% coinsurance" means the member is responsible for 60% of the cost of the service after the deductible 
  • Deductible: the amount that the member must pay in any given policy year before MeridianChoice will begin paying for specific covered services. Deductibles are defined as a fixed dollar amount
    • For example: if the member's policy has a $2,000 deductible, MeridianChoice will not pay for any covered services until the member has paid $2,000 towards covered services for which the deductible applies during that policy year. Members may find their deductible on the Schedule of Copayments and Deductibles
