A new option for health insurance

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Understanding health care options can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to choosing new plans. Now there is a new plan called the Healthy Michigan Plan.

The Healthy Michigan Plan is a new program that provides coverage for people that are up to 133% of the Federal Poverty Level. That’s an income of $15,200 for a household of one, or $31,300 for a household of four. Other requirements include:

  • Ages 19-64
  • A resident of Michigan
  • Not currently eligible for Medicaid
  • Not eligible for or enrolled in Medicare
  • Not pregnant when applying for the plan  

The Healthy Michigan Plan covers doctor visits, emergency services, hospitalization, maternity and newborn care, prescription drugs, laboratory services, and preventive and wellness services.

You can enroll in the Healthy Michigan Plan online, by phone, or in person. You can find information on Priority Health’s Healthy Michigan Plan on their website, or visit the Michigan Department of Community Health’s website for a more complete overview.
