Information for MIChild Providers


On January 1, 2016, MIChild will become a Medicaid expansion program. The MIChild name will still be used in most communications, but beneficiaries will now be eligible for all Medicaid covered services. This transition will provide increased benefits and improved access for beneficiaries. These changes will also affect how the MIChild program is administered by MDHHS and its partners.

MIChild families pay a monthly premium of $10 for MIChild coverage.  The premium and method of collection for the premium will not change and MIChild will continue to assist beneficiaries in enrolling in a MIChild Medicaid Health Plan.  All current MIChild families will receive a letter with their MDHHS specialist/caseworker's name and contact information in late December.  

More information about this change will be added to this page when available.
