The Federal Public Health Emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic ended on January 31, 2022. This means that your Medicaid coverage will be affected if you do not reapply or complete enrollment by April 1, 2023.
To avoid any gaps in your healthcare coverage, including ABA Therapy for your child, it is important that you take action as soon as possible to ensure that your Medicaid benefits continue.
What Do You Need to Do?
- Be sure your address, phone number, and email address are up to date. The best way to update your information is online at Michigan.gov/MIBridges. You can also call your local MDHHS office. Visit the MDHHS County Office webpage to find your local office information.
- If you do not have an online account for MI Bridges to access your Medicaid case or report changes, visit www.michigan.gov/mibridges to sign up for a MI Bridges account. You can also locate organizations that can help you by searching for Community Partners.
*If you already have a MI Bridges account, creating new accounts will limit the information you can see. We strongly suggest using the original account if you are the "Head of Household." Remember, heads of household can see case information and report changes to case information. If you are not the head of household, you will only see resource information.
- Report any changes to your household or income. You can report changes at Michigan.gov/MIBridges. Or, call your local MDHHS office. Visit the MDHHS County Office webpage to find your local office information.
- If you get a renewal packet, be sure to fill it out, sign the forms, and return it by the due date with any proof needed. NOTE: If you do not complete and return the renewal, you may lose Medicaid coverage. If we complete a review and you no longer qualify, you can choose to buy health care coverage at HealthCare.gov.
How to get more information
MDHHS will continue to communicate with you through mailed letters, MI Bridges, emails, text messages and social media.
Individuals who no longer qualify for these programs may have other healthcare coverage options through the HealthCare Marketplace, which will be explained in future communications.
Thank you for you attention to this important matter. We value your continued partnership with us and want to ensure that you have access to the healthcare you need. We will continue to send communications as we learn more.
