Questionnaire NameHealthy Michigan - Amendment Request
DescriptionMichigan proposes to amend its demonstration, "Healthy Michigan Plan." The state is requesting that in order for beneficiaries with income between 100 percent and 133 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL) to maintain eligibility after 48 months of cumulative enrollment, they must engage in annual healthy behaviors and non-exempt beneficiaries must pay a monthly 5 percent of income premium as a condition of continued Medicaid eligibility. The state is also requesting the authority to require beneficiaries to participate in community engagement requirements as a condition of continued Medicaid eligibility. Michigan is no longer seeking to implement the "Marketplace Option" and is no longer seeking continuation of the corresponding authorities. The federal comment period will be open from September 26, 2018 through October 26, 2018.

My daughter, who is 24, cannot receive coverage under my husbands insurance (state of MI retiree). She attends college and works part time. With Medicaid we don't have to worry about her health needs while she works to continue her education. Though she is a healthy young woman, like all people she occasionally gets ill (sinus infection, strep, etc.), when that happens she can see a doctor w/o fear of the cost. Also her regular checkups and birth control are covered so that there does not need to be a disruption to education.

Also, this program briefly covered our son, who has Type 1 diabetes, when he was done with college, but had not yet found a teaching position. The cost of his insulin would have been impossible for us to manage without Healthy Michigan Medicaid.
