WHI members enroll 13,360 in Medicaid insurance plans

During the 2016-17 Open Enrollment period, 20 student WHI volunteers increased awareness and knowledge of health insurance coverage options by distributing over 6,000 flyers, hosting 12 outreach events, and hosting eight enrollment events in areas with high rates of uninsurance or underinsurance.

The Washtenaw Health Plan provided additional financial and staffing support for these activities. At the enrollment events, 58 people were enrolled in health insurance. Overall, the WHI and partners enrolled 711 people in Marketplace plans and 13,360 people in Medicaid/Healthy Michigan Plans during the enrollment period.
