MICHIGAN – Feb. 26, 2016 — Although 2016 open enrollment ended at the beginning of February, Navigators throughout the state of Michigan are still pushing to get uninsured residents who qualify for Medicaid or a special enrollment period (SEP) enrolled in health insurance coverage.
In an effort to reach the ALICE (asset-limited, income-constrained, employed) and other potential uninsured populations, Enroll Michigan’s statewide network of CMS-certified (Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services) Navigators has partnered with Detroit HUD Office of General Council to provide free outreach, education and enrollment services to residents in need of health insurance coverage. Organization officials say Navigators will be available to schedule onsite enrollment appointments at the residents’ convenience.
”Reaching consumers that reside in HUD-operated and subsidized properties has been a major goal of Enroll Michigan for the past several years, and this partnership with the Detroit HUD office allows our network to fully move forward with outreach and enrollment efforts all across the state,” says Dizzy Warren, executive director of Enroll Michigan. “We plan to hold outreach and enrollment events at more than 100 HUD locations statewide over the next few months.”
