In late July, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) announced MIHealthyLife, an initiative to strengthen Medicaid coverage by seeking public input as the department rebids its Medicaid health plan contracts.

Medicaid and the Healthy Michigan Plan provide health care coverage to about 2.2 million Michiganders, including low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. 

Through this online survey, MDHHS hopes to receive input to identify opportunities for innovation and improvement in the services and support provided by the Medicaid health plans.

Survey questions seek feedback on broad priorities or strategic pillars that will guide the state’s policy and program areas to help determine where the state should focus its efforts. Examples of pillars include giving all children a healthy start, reducing racial and ethnic health disparities, and using data to drive outcomes.

Survey responses must be submitted through the online survey no later than 5 p.m., Aug. 26.
