Enrollment for Expanded Medicaid Begins

The Michigan Department of Community Health says low-income adults can begin enrolling for health insurance in the state’s Healthy Michigan Plan starting April 1 under Michigan’s expansion of Medicaid. The plan expands eligibility to people between the ages of 19-64, not currently eligible for Medicaid, not eligible for or enrolled in Medicare, and earning up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level, which means as many as 477,000 people could enroll. Governor Rick Snyder says this is a significant step in ongoing efforts to ensure the health and well being of all Michiganders. He says a healthier Michigan is an important part of the state’s continued comeback and will help improve health and quality of life, save money for taxpayers and job providers and boost the economy.
