More about Michigan Medicaid
Health care coverage is available to individuals and families who meet certain eligibility requirements. The goal of these health care programs is to ensure that essential health care services are made available to those who otherwise do not have the financial resources to purchase them.
It is very important that individuals and families obtain health care coverage. In Michigan, there are many health care programs available to children, adults, and families. Specific coverages may vary depending on the program and the applicant’s citizenship status (some non-citizens may be limited to coverage of emergency services only). The Michigan Department of Human Services (MDHS) determines eligibility for some of the health care programs that are administered by the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH).
All of the health care programs in Michigan have an income test and some of the programs also have an asset test. These income and asset tests may vary with each program. For some of the programs, the applicant may have income that is over the income limit and still be able to obtain health care benefits when their medical expenses equal or exceed their deductible (formerly known as spend-down) amount.
