  • Health Insurance Open Enrollment: If You Need Health Insurance Coverage in Michigan, Help is Here

    This site contains everything you need to know about health insurance, how to get covered, and how to use your coverage to keep yourself and your family healthy.
     

    There are many ways to get covered, and there is no wrong way to begin. Open enrollment on the Health Insurance Marketplace runs Nov. 1 to Dec. 15. Outside of that time, you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period if you experience a qualifying life event, such as a job loss or change in household size. 


    No matter the time of year, you can also apply for coverage through MI Bridges, where you will be evaluated on whether you could be covered by Medicaid, the Healthy Michigan Plan, or the Children's Health Insurance Program.
