Low Income People Can Get Health Insurance
Thursday, April 24, 2014
TAYLOR, Mich. – On April 1, the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) launched the Healthy Michigan Plan - a new, affordable healthcare program for low-income adults between the ages of 19 and 64. The Healthy Michigan Plan covers many services, including preventive and wellness
services, doctor visits, hospital care, prescription medications, dental and vision services and much more – all while offering incentives for people who adopt healthier behaviors. At the same time, people with pre-existing conditions won’t be denied coverage.
This coverage is available as part of the Affordable Care Act and the staff of Western Wayne Family Health Centers are very excited to help everyone in our community get health insurance so that they
can stay healthy or take care of health problems they could not afford to address without health insurance. This plan will offer coverage to many who could not afford it or did not qualify before April 1st. This includes young men who don’t have children and people with full or part time jobs.
