A definition of Medicaid in Michigan

"Medicaid is health care coverage for low-income people and working families who qualify. This includes families, children, and women who are pregnant. It also offers help to people who are blind, disabled or age 65 and over.

Medicaid is available to families under the Low Income Family (LIF) Program. There are income and asset tests. Families that receive cash assistance (Family Independence Program or FIP) are automatically eligible for this program. Other families must apply at the local MDHS office. Families don't have to apply for FIP in order to receive health care coverage under this program. Most beneficiaries are enrolled in a Medicaid health plan and receive a comprehensive package of health care benefits including vision, dental, and mental health services.

The Michigan Healthy Kids program:

"Healthy Kids is a Medicaid health care program for low-income children under age 19 and for Pregnant Women of any age. There is only an income test. There is no monthly premium for Healthy Kids. Most children who are eligible for Healthy Kids are enrolled in a Medicaid health plan. "

The Michigan MIChild program:

"MIChild is a health care program administered by the Department of Community Health. It is for the low income uninsured children of Michigan's working families. MIChild has a higher income limit than Healthy Kids. There is only an income test. Like Healthy Kids, MIChild is for children who are under age 19. "
