MIHealthyLife

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is announcing MIHealthyLife, an initiative to strengthen Medicaid coverage by seeking public input as the department rebids its Medicaid health plan contracts.

Through MIHealthyLife, MDHHS seeks to bring together the investment, creativity and commitment of the department and its partners – including health plans, providers and communities – to create a more equitable, coordinated and person-centered system of care dedicated to ensuring Michiganders a healthier future.

MIHealthyLife Press Release (7/29/22)

SURVEY

In fall 2023, MDHHS will ask Medicaid health plans for new contract proposals to provide health services to people enrolled in Medicaid. As part of this effort, MDHHS is providing a survey for stakeholders to submit ideas to make the program better and collecting input about potential changes to the new contracts. Survey questions seek feedback on broad priorities or strategic pillars – which are principles that will guide the state’s policy and program areas to assist in determining where the state should focus its efforts. Examples of pillars include giving all children a healthy start, reducing racial and ethnic health disparities and using data to drive outcomes. 

Feedback will help guide planning and decision-making in preparation for the implementation of new Medicaid health plan contracts, as well as other MDHHS efforts to improve the health of residents served by the programs. MDHHS hopes to receive input from people enrolled in Medicaid and their families, advocacy groups, community-based organizations, health care and other providers, health systems, health plans and other interested parties. 

Survey responses must be submitted by August 26th at 5:00 pm.
