May 30, 2014
As of May 1, 2014, there were 1,363,273 Medicaid beneficiaries, including Healthy Michigan Plan (HMP) beneficiaries, enrolled in 13 Medicaid Health Plans (HMOs); this is an increase of 91,532 since March. This increase includes 57,915 HMP enrollees and 33,617 non-HMP Medicaid enrollees. (Note that enrollment information is not available for April 2014.) The number of non-HMP Medicaid beneficiaries for which managed care enrollment is still in process is 70,907; the number of HMP beneficiaries for which managed care enrollment is still in process is 185,903.
As the enrollment reports (pdf) (xls) reflect, every county in the state is served by at least one Medicaid Health Plan. Auto-assignment of beneficiaries into the HMOs is now in place in every county of the state and there are at least two HMOs serving every county in the Lower Peninsula. Beneficiaries in all 15 counties in the Upper Peninsula are auto-assigned, through federal “Rural Exception” authority, to the one HMO serving the counties, Upper Peninsula Health Plan.
