Voices for Better Health (VBH) is an effort to help consumers have a strong and effective voice in shaping the state’s new health care option for people who are eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare.
Michigan’s “Integrated Care for People who are Dually Eligible” demonstration project will serve older people and people with disabilities or chronic illnesses beginning in July, 2014. It will serve consumers in Wayne County, Macomb County, eight counties in Southwest Michigan, and all of the Upper Peninsula. VBH will work with consumers, the state, health care and behavioral health providers, and health plans to ensure consumers have a continuing role in building the new program and promoting person-centered, coordinated, high quality care.
VBH is a joint effort of Michigan Consumers for Healthcare (MCH), the Michigan Poverty Law Program (MPLP), and the Michigan Disability Rights Coalition (MDRC), three Michigan consumer advocacy organizations. It is funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies and supported by Community Catalyst, a national health care advocacy organization.
We welcome your participation! To learn how you can help promote a strong consumer voice, person-centered health care and supports and services, and innovative healthcare programs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or MDRC at 1-800-760-4600
