MIChild is a state-designed program that provides health coverage to low-income children under the age of 19 who are not eligible for Medicaid and who have no health care coverage.

  • Your child must meet certain other qualifications. A child whose family has a household income at or below 200% of the federal poverty level may be eligible for MIChild. For a family of 3, this works out to an annual income of about $34,340, or a monthly income of $2,862. In addition, your child must be a resident of the state (except for newborns) and cannot have any other health insurance coverage, including Medicaid.
  • If eligible, your child will receive comprehensive health coverage. Benefits include but are not limited to well-child visits, immunizations, emergency care, dental care, vision and hearing, prescription drugs, and mental health and substance abuse services. There are no co-payments or deductibles.
  • You will be responsible for a $10 monthly premium per family.
  • For help, contact your health plan or MIChild at (888) 988-6300. An application can be downloaded by going to www.mdch.state.mi.us/MSA/mdch_msa/App.htm.
