Michigan’s Expansion to Highly Integrated Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (HIDE D-SNP)

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a final rule, CMS 4192-F, that will allow State Medicare-Medicaid Plans (MMPs), like Michigan’s MI Health Link (MIHL) program to expanded into an integrated Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP). This transition will take place over the next several years with the new HIDE D-SNP program launching on January 1, 2026.

The goal of this website is to provide beneficiaries, health plans, stakeholder, advocates, and the public with up-to-date information on this transition.
