Essential health care coverage, such as Medical Assistance or Medicaid, is available to those who otherwise cannot afford it. Michigan has many health care programs available to children, families and adults who meet eligibility requirements. Each program has income limits and some have an asset limit - limits vary with each program.
If you need help with past, unpaid medical expenses, your coverage may begin three months before your application month. Ask your specialist for more details.
Once you have been determined eligible for Medicaid you will receive a mihealth card. Each member of the family receives his or her own card. Most people who receive Medicaid must join a health plan. You will need to show your mihealth card and your health plan card when you receive medical services.
Do not throw this card away. If your mihealth card is lost, stolen or damaged, call 800-642-3195.
