The end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency requires MDHHS to begin the Renewal Process for all residents currently receiving coverage from Medicaid insurance programs.
The first group of residents should already have received their Renewal Forms which are due by June 30, 2023. Renewals Forms will be sent monthly through May of 2024. If you have not received a pacakge and want to know when your Forms should be coming, go to MIBridges to check you renewal month.
Here is what You need to do to prepare:
1. Make sure your address, phone number and email address are up to date at MIBridges. You can also call your local MDHHS office. If you do not have an online account for MI Bridges to access your Medicaid case or report changes, visit www.michigan.gov/MIBridges to sign up for an account. You can also contact one of our Medicaid Navigators by calling Your Local Health Department at:
Branch: 517-279-9561 ext. 232 or 132
Hillsdale: 517-437-7395 ext. 321
St. Joseph: 269-273-2161 ext. 207
2. Report any changes to your household or income. You can report changes
at Michigan.gov/MIBridges or by calling your local MDHHS office.
3. If you get a renewal packet, be sure to fill it out, sign the forms and return it by
the due date with any proof needed. NOTE: If you do not complete and return the
renewal, you may lose Medicaid coverage.
MDHHS advises families to return any renewal paperwork they receive from the
department, even if they believe they are no longer eligible. Some members
of a household can obtain coverage even when others are not eligible. For
example, a child may be eligible for MiChild, even if their parent is not eligible for other
Medicaid programs. Or some Michiganders may have income that is over the income
limit for one program and still be able to obtain health care benefits through another
