The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is providing notice to all Medicaid providers that it will hold a webinar about the upcoming changes to the Healthy Michigan Plan.

MDHHS will implement new work, healthy behavior, and cost-sharing requirements beginning on January 1, 2020 for Medicaid beneficiaries who have Healthy Michigan Plan (HMP) health care coverage in compliance with Public Act 208 of 2018 and the Special Terms & Conditions of the Section 1115 Demonstration Waiver Amendment that was approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on December 21, 2018. HMP beneficiaries will be subject to the new requirements as a condition of Medicaid eligibility based on the criteria outlined below:

  • Work Requirements: For HMP beneficiaries who are between the ages of 19 and 62 and do not meet exemption criteria.
  • Healthy Behavior and Cost Sharing Requirements: For HMP beneficiaries who have been enrolled in a Medicaid Health Plan (MHP) for at least 48 cumulative months, have an income greater than 100% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), and do not meet exemption criteria.

The webinar will be held on August 12, 2019, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. All providers are invited to attend. Attendees will be provided information about the upcoming changes and will be given an opportunity to submit questions.
