MI Health Link is a new health care option for Michigan adults, age 21 or over, who are enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid. MHL will be available to these individuals if they are residents of the Upper Peninsula, Macomb or Wayne Counties, or eight counties in Southwest Michigan. Advocates and service providers for eligible individuals should be familiar with MHL and its range of services.
This guide is intended to assist advocates in understand MHL, including a description of the MHL program, covered services, eligibility and enrollment details, a detailed timeline, plan transition information, and appeal rights.

Learning Valuable Information
On Tuesday, December 13th, you are invited to eat and learn about the Mi HealthLink program if you are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. Not only is there a lunch and a chance to talk to other people who are dual eligible, but you can bring a family member with you to share lunch and the presentation. The event runs from Noon to 2 pm, and after the event, you will have a chance if you want to talk to the health plans about what they can offer you in support of your health. And it’s all free.
If you are interested in attending, check out the whole information flyer that has more about the event, the location of the event, how you can travel for free to the event, and how to register.
You can also call Anita of the Michigan Disability Rights Coalition at 1-800-760-4600, ext. 318 for your lunch reservation.
