COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) 2023 Benefit Changes

Many changes were made to the Medicaid program's eligibility, administration, and policies to ease rules for providers and prevent Medicaid beneficiaries from losing health insurance. As per recent federal legislation, Michigan will restart monthly eligibility renewals for both fee-for-service Medicaid and Medicaid Health Plan (MHP) starting in June 2023. Certain waived policies that were in place during the PHE are now in the process of unwinding and will continue the unwind process as the authority for these policies expire.

Provider Enrollment

All providers who serve Michigan Medicaid beneficiaries are required to be screened and enrolled in the Community Health Automated Medicaid Processing System (CHAMPS). For assistance in enrolling please call 1-800-292-2550 option 4.

Effective October 1, 2019, providers who prescribe drugs to Medicaid beneficiaries must be actively enrolled in CHAMPS. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) will prohibit payment for prescription drug claims written by a prescriber who is not enrolled in CHAMPS.
