A new healthcare option called MI Health Link is available in our area. MI Health Link will allow you to use one card to get health care, behavioral health care, home and community-based services, nursing home care and medications through one health plan. You will have your choice of doctors and other providers within your health plan’s network who will work together to give you the care you want and need. 

If you choose to join a MI Health Link health plan, you will have your own Care Coordinator who will help link you to your doctors, pharmacies, behavioral health care and long term care supports and services through your health plan. The Care Coordinator will also help make sure that all your doctors and other providers work together to meet your needs and honor your choices. This person will assist with your care plan, answer your questions, help get appointments and services, arrange transportation, and more. 

If you currently live in one of the counties where MI Health Link will be offered, you may be eligible if you:
Are age 21 or older?
Have full Medicare and full Medicaid?
Are not enrolled in Hospice?
