Updated January 13, 2014
Under the Affordable Care Act, private health insurance companies are offering new plans for individuals, families and small businesses to buy, with fewer restrictions than before. Soon, the state of Michigan will be expanding Medicaid private plan coverage to make that form of insurance available to more people.
No matter where you receive your care, check carefully before selecting a plan, to make sure that it will cover care at your preferred clinics and hospitals.
Which plans will be accepted at U-M Health System hospitals, health centers and other facilities?
As of February 2014, we will be participating directly in 76 of the 101 plans offered to individuals and families on the Michigan health insurance Marketplace (also called the health insurance Exchange), and 55 of the 68 plans available in Michigan on the Small Business Health Options Program, or SHOP.
For plans we don't participate in: UMHS will be considered out-of-network, but there may be circumstances under which the plans might allow a participant to come to us for advanced care.
We will update this page with the names of the Medicaid expansion plans that we will participate in, when they are available.
