Medicaid Coverage Redetermination

Per federal legislation enacted in December, Michigan Medicaid beneficiaries will have to renew coverage starting in June 2023.

During the federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, Congress enacted the Families First Coronavirus Response Act that required state Medicaid agencies continue healthcare coverage for all medical assistance programs, even if someone's eligibility changed. This requirement was ended by the federal Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 signed Dec. 29, 2022.

The State of Michigan is committed to doing what it can to help Michiganders find quality, affordable healthcare coverage in light of the changes by the federal government. Michiganders who no longer qualify for Medicaid due to the federal government’s changes will receive additional information about other affordable health coverage options available, including on

  • Affected Michiganders will be able to shop for and enroll in comprehensive health insurance as they transition away from Medicaid, and many Michiganders can purchase a plan for less than $10 per month.

Renewals for traditional Medicaid and the Healthy Michigan Plan take place monthly starting in June 2023 and will continue annually going forward based on a participant’s renewal date.

  • Monthly renewal notices will be sent three months prior to a beneficiaries’ renewal date starting with June renewals.
  • Beneficiaries can check their renewal month at
