Health Services

Click on each title below to see detailed information.

Starting January 1, 2014, all Americans must have private health insurance or be enrolled in a qualified government health plan or face penalties. 

To apply for coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace, compare plans, and/or enroll, go to: www.HealthCare.gov. This site helps people shop for and enroll in affordable health insurance. 

If you want free help in understanding, applying, and/or enrolling in the health coverage through the Marketplace, there are people available to help:

  1. Navigators provide impartial education about the Health Insurance Marketplace and health plans, helping applicants determine whether they qualify for subsidies or Medicaid, and assisting them in the enrollment process. For a list of Macomb County navigators, go to: https://localhelp.healthcare.gov/#/, type in your zipcode and local navigators will be displayed.
  2. Certified application counselors (CACs) can also provide assistance with the enrollment process. They are similar to Navigators, but their role is more limited and their focus tends to be strictly on helping people enroll, without the more extensive assistance that some Navigators can provide.

  3. Insurance brokers and agents are certified in their state and can also explain plan details and help consumers determine subsidy or Medicaid eligibility, and they can also make plan recommendations based on a client’s particular situation.

In addition, Michigan offers several medical assistance programs. Each program covers different groups of people and each program has different eligibility requirements. When you apply for a program, your age, income, financial resources, and other information will be used to determine if you are eligible. You must also meet the financial and non-financial eligibility conditions for that program:


The Michigan Medicaid Health Care Program provides medical
and health-related assistance to low-income individuals and
families with no medical insurance or those that have
inadequate medical insurance.

Generally, the program serves persons aged 65 or older; blind
or permanently disabled persons; members of families with
dependent children; children in foster care homes; pregnant
women; and individuals under age 21 in psychiatric hospitals.


MIChild is a health care program for children who are under
age 19.

It is for the low-income uninsured children of Michigan's
working families.
