HEALTHY MICHIGAN PLAN ANNUAL RENEWAL
If you are enrolled in Healthy Michigan Plan health care coverage, you are required to complete health care coverage renewal paperwork at least every 12 months. The steps below will give you information on what to expect at annual renewal and what you need to do to keep your coverage.
To get help at any point of the renewal or application process, visit enrollmichigan.com or call 2-1-1 to find free assistance.
You should receive a renewal (Redetermination) letter in the mail and in your MI Bridges online account.
Your renewal letter (also called a Redetermination letter) will arrive in your 11th month of coverage. The month of your renewal will be based on the date you enrolled in coverage. Example: You applied for coverage on April 13, 2014 and were approved for coverage on May 5, 2014. Your coverage start date was April 1, 2014. DHHS will send your renewal letter in February 2015. Your renewal paperwork will be due on March 1, 2015.
You can log-in to your MI Bridges account to complete renewal online or you can complete and return the Redetermination form you receive in the mail.
To complete your renewal online, visit michigan.gov/mibridges. You will log-in using the MI Bridges username and password you created when you applied. If you do not have an account, you can create one.Your renewal due date is listed on the first page of your renewal letter and forms.
