Does Dr. Devaraj accept your insurance?
Dr. Devaraj is “in network” and thus a “preferred provider” Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO including Anthem BCBS PPO, and most out-of-state BCBS PPO. She does NOT accept Blue Cross Complete, General Motors BCBS (where subscriber ID starts with GM), or “EPO” BCBS PPO insurance.

Please note that Beacon health often looks like BCBS PPO, and that is an insurance that Dr. Devaraj does not accept. She also does not accept BCBS Medicare plans. It’s best not to assume your Blue Cross Blue Shield will be covered; email a picture of your insurance card front/back to fileandfax@annarborpsych.mojohelpdesk.com and ask us to verify your insurance before you make an appointment to ensure you are covered.
