Blues team up to cover uninsured children in Michigan
Helping residents get access to health care is an important part of the Blues’ social mission. That’s why we’re proud to participate with the Michigan Department of Community Health in the MIChild program for kids.
The program provides health and dental coverage to children of working families for just $10 a month. Children may qualify if they:
- Are legal residents of Michigan
- Are younger than age 19
- Don’t have other health care coverage
- Are not married
- Meet certain financial guidelines
The $10 monthly premium per family provides complete coverage for things like dental exams and routine checkups, well-baby care and child care visits, emergency care, prescription drugs, shots and vision and hearing care. There are no other costs so long as you see your health plan’s doctors.
If you know a child in Michigan who lacks health insurance coverage, tell his or her parents or guardians about MIChild. Or visit the state’s MIChild Web site for more information or to enroll.
