The Michigan Medicaid Medicare Integration Project has been officially named MI Health Link. In early April, The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to develop and implement Michigan's demonstration project to integrate care for individuals who are dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. The project's goal is to streamline access to physical, mental health, long term care, and other services for persons covered by both Medicaid and Medicare. Click here to read the full announcement.
The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) will be hosting a public forum on the state’s plan to integrate care for individuals who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid on April 8, 2014 at the Radisson Plaza Hotel and Suites, located at 100 W. Michigan Avenue in Kalamazoo. The forum will be held in the Arcadia Ballroom located on the main level from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon EST. There will also be a local forum, in the Metro Detroit area, later this year. Watch this space for details.
