(04/01/14) - Starting Tuesday, more people are eligible to sign up for Medicaid.
It's the state's new Medicaid expansion program - the Healthy Michigan Plan.
Genesee Health Plan is working to help people in Mid-Michigan sign up.
The Healthy Michigan Plan is part of the Affordable Care Act. It expands the criteria of who is eligible for Medicaid.
Before, your income didn't matter - you had to have a medical condition to apply for Medicaid.
That's all changed now.
For a single person, your income must be around $16,000 a year - or $33,000 for a family of four.
You must be between the ages of 19 and 64 and you must not be enrolled in other Medicaid programs.
There are a few ways to sign up - one is to call 1-855-789-5610 or head to their website, HERE.
