Michigan Health Insurance

Michigan has great statistics when it comes to Health Insurance coverage. Despite having very lo public Health funding within the state, almost 90 percent of all residents have some sort of Health Insurance Coverage, a percentage that is one of the highest in America. It’s a known fact that the state of Michigan has worked hard towards offering an accessible health plan to its citizens. Nevertheless, something needs to be done about the 11% of its residents that currently lack Health Insurance. Currently, about 6 out of 10 employers in the state offer Health Insurance Coverage to their workers, and 80% of those workers take advantage of this benefit.

As mentioned above, although having a great percentage of Health Insurance coverage, Public Health Funding is very low in this state, but the good news is that Health Care is very accessible within the state. The percentage of primary care physicians is 113 per 100,000 residents, and the percentage of Michigan residents that could get Health Care if needed is almost 88 percent. Federally Qualified Health Centers are also available, and serve about 15% of all residents in Michigan under the 200% Federal Poverty Line.

If you are a Michigan resident looking for Health Insurance plan for you and your loved ones, we strongly recommend you to visit the Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation. This Office is the one that regulates the insurance industry and can help you confirm that any agent or insurance company that you’re interested of doing business with is licensed to do business in Michigan.
