Signed up for the Healthy Michigan Plan? Thinking about signing up and wondering if it’s the right fit for you?

The Healthy Michigan Plan is health insurance coverage that’s intended to work for both your health, and your budget.

The plan is designed to provide health insurance benefits to lower income residents. To be eligible for Healthy Michigan, you must be between the ages of 19 and 64, make less than $16,000 as a single individual or $33,000 for a family of four and be a resident of the State of Michigan. If that’s you and you’re ready to sign up, there are three options – enroll online, call 1-855-789-5610 or visit your local Department of Human Services office.

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive a membership card that you can carry with you and show when you get service. You’ll have coverage for common medical needs, such as visiting a doctor or filling prescriptions as well as a few extras. After all, this plan is there to help you get and stay healthy.

Healthy Michigan Plan coverage includes:

  • Hospital visits
  • Doctor visits
  • Prescription drugs
  • Laboratory services
  • Emergency services
  • Maternity and newborn care
  • Preventive services, including dental care
  • Therapy and equipment to help you recover from or live with an illness or injury
  • Help with mental health and substance use problems
  • Ambulance services
  • Care that prevents injuries

But make sure you look for a plan that offers more (and then take advantage of those services once you sign up)! Some of additional services include:

  • Access to a large network of doctors
  • Preventative care tools
  • Transportation assistance to get you to and from the doctors
  • Personalized help managing problems with your health

If you aren’t already signed up, you should consider it and here’s why –

The ACA requires most Americans to have health insurance or pay a penalty. If you can’t pay for it on your own, a Healthy Michigan Plan is an option that can lower the cost of your health insurance. You’ll get the same type of health care coverage you may have gotten through an employer or paid for on your own in the past. And if you haven’t had health insurance before, a Healthy Michigan Plan is a great option.
