Expanded Medicaid Information: You Still Have Family Planning Coverage!!!
On April 1, 2014 the new expanded Medicaid program, called Healthy Michigan, went into effect. New enrollments into the former Plan First! program (which covered family planning services for eligible women at no cost) are no longer accepted. Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), women currently enrolled in Plan First! or meet the criteria must apply for comprehensive health care coverage under the Healthy Michigan Plan or through other options on the Healthcare Marketplace.*
YOU DO NOT NEED TO PAY CO-PAYS OR HIGH DEDUCTIBLES
Annual exams, STI testing and birth control are STILL FREE with your Expanded Medicaid or Plan First! Program!!
We know that there are high deductibles and co-pay requirements for services through Healthy Michigan. However, patients who are qualified and enrolled in a Healthy Michigan plan have the same covered family planning benefits they had under Plan First!, with no co-pay or deductibles! Preventative and family planning services are exempt from the co-pay requirements of expanded Medicaid, so there will be no out of pocket costs to patients. This includes routine GYN exams, pregnancy testing, birth control counseling, birth control methods (condoms, birth control pills), testing for sexually transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS testing and services.

How do I sign up for Healthy Michigan Insurance?
If you qualify for the Healthy Michigan Plan you probably also qualify for Merck’s Patient Assistance Program that will cover the cost of the HPV vaccine.
