Medicaid helps families with children, pregnant women, the elderly, the blind, and persons with disabilities who need medical care.
The State of Michigan has contracted with managed care plans like HealthPlus Partners to provide a broad range of Medicaid covered health care services. To do this, HealthPlus Partners contracts with a large provider network of primary care physicians, specialists, hospitals, urgent care clinics, emergency rooms, pharmacies, durable medical equipment, vision, and many others to provide health care services to our members.
Who qualifies for Medicaid?
Medicaid eligibility is based on several factors determined by the Department of Human Services. You may qualify for health care coverage if you meet the requirements of one of the many programs offered and you are :
- A Michigan resident, or
- Currently living in Michigan in order to work.
You do not have to be a United States citizen or have permanent alien resident status to receive Medicaid. However, certain aliens may be restricted to emergency Medicaid services only. Medicaid coverage allows individuals to earn certain amounts of income and still receive health care coverage. If you are not sure you're eligible for Medicaid, HealthPlus Partners encourages you to contact your local Department of Human Services (DHS) office for more information at
