Public Invited to Medicare and Medicaid Dual Eligibility Discussions

Residents across the area are invited to join the Michigan Association of Community Mental Health Boards (MACMHB) at two forums to discuss the state’s proposed plan for those that are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid services.

Last year, Michigan was awarded a federal planning grant to examine “dual eligibility” and how to provide better integrated care and create a more efficient health care system. The proposed plan was released in Lansing on March 5, and will cover services and benefits for persons with both Medicare and Medicaid eligibility. The forums will give persons with dual eligibility an opportunity to review the proposed plan, and to ask questions of representatives from the Michigan Department of Community Health’s Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities administration.
