Enrollment

There are more than fifteen community organizations in Washtenaw County that have been designated as Certified Application Counselor (CAC) Organizations by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Since many organizations serve a highly uninsured population, they are focusing their initial enrollment assistance on their current clients and patients. Below is a list of those organizations who are able to serve additional clients and patients at this time.

Medicaid

Michigan’s House voted on June 13 to pass the Medicaid expansion, with the Senate following suit on August 27. The House approved Senate changes on September 3. The bill now heads to Governor Snyder for signature.

Exchange Marketplace

Michigan will have a federally-facilitated exchange for 2014, and possibly thereafter. This makes Michigan ineligible for funding for In-Person Assisters, but Michigan will have a statewide Navigator organization, as well as the opportunity for providers across the state to become Certified Application Consultants.
