June 1, 2015
As of May 1, 2015, there were 1,645,820 Medicaid beneficiaries, including Healthy Michigan Plan (HMP) beneficiaries, enrolled in 13 Medicaid Health Plans (HMOs); this is an increase of 36,308 since April. The enrollment total reflects an increase of 17,421 HMP enrollees since April and an increase of 18,887 non-HMP Medicaid enrollees.
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 available in every county, 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.
