Michigan Medicaid

Through an Interdepartmental Agreement with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, we facilitate access to health care services for uninsured and underinsured residents by providing Medicaid outreach and eligibility determination, including referrals, coordination and monitoring of medical services. The Interdepartmental Agreement notes that these activities can often be performed in a more cost-effective manner when they are carried out in a coordinated fashion. In such cases, it recommends that those functions can be transferred to Authority Health through a transfer agreement.

MIChild is a health care program for children who are under age 19 and is administered by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The program is designed to serve the uninsured children of Michigan’s low-income working families. MIChild has a higher income limit than U-19 Medicaid.

Medicare Savings Program (MSP)

The Medicare Savings Program pays for certain Medicare costs. In some cases, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services may refund the beneficiary a portion of the Medicare Part B premium on an annual basis.

Medicaid for Pregnant Women

Medicaid is available to an eligible woman while she is pregnant, including the month her pregnancy ends and during the two calendar months following the month her pregnancy ends, regardless of the reason (such as live birth or miscarriage, as examples).

Maternity Outpatient Medical Services (MOMS)
