Medicaid Benefit Changes

During the federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE), 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 care coverage.  Michigan will soon restart Medicaid eligibility renewals and certain waived policies that were in place during the pandemic. MDHHS is preparing for these changes and will send notifications soon on what this means for beneficiaries. This website will be continually updated with the latest information as the department restarts processes and releases updated policies.

Eligibility Renewal Timeline

What to do now

  • Be sure your address, phone number, and email address are up to date. The best way to update your information is online at Michigan.gov/MIBridges. You can also call your local MDHHS office. Visit the MDHHS County Office webpage to find your local office information. If you do not have an online account for MI Bridges to access your Medicaid case or report changes, visit www.michigan.gov/mibridges to sign up for a MI Bridges account. You can also locate organizations that can help you by searching for Community Partners.

    *If you already have a MI Bridges account, creating new accounts will limit the information you can see. We strongly suggest using the original account if you are the “Head of Household.” Remember, heads of household can see case information and report changes to case information.  If you are not the head of household, you will only see resource information.

  • Report any changes to your household or income. You can report changes at Michigan.gov/MIBridges. Or, call your local MDHHS office. Visit the MDHHS County Office webpage to find your local office information.
  • If you get a renewal packet, be sure to fill it out, sign the forms, and return it by the due date with any proof needed. NOTE: If you do not complete and return the renewal, you may lose Medicaid coverage. If we complete a review and you no longer qualify, you can choose to buy health care coverage at HealthCare.gov.
