“Genesee Health Plan is honored to receive this award and deeply grateful that we can continue to help the residents of Genesee County get access to health care services that can save and improve lives,” said Jim Milanowski, President and CEO of Genesee Health Plan. “Genesee Health Plan looks forward to continuing our work of reaching out to everyone in Genesee County and finding ways we can help more people. From underinsured families and seniors to military veterans, Genesee Health Plan will continue to work hard to connect people with the care and treatment they need.”
Since the launch of the ACA in 2013, GHP has reached out to and educated nearly 15,000 people in Genesee County about getting health care coverage. In the process, GHP helped more than 4,000 people apply and re-apply for the Healthcare Marketplace. In total, 10,900 Genesee County residents have insurance through the Healthcare Marketplace. As of Aug. 31, more than 35,500 people have been enrolled into the Healthy Michigan Plan in Genesee County. The Healthy Michigan Plan expands Medicaid eligibility under the ACA.
In addition to enrolling people into the Healthcare Marketplace or into the Healthy Michigan Plan, GHP – which is not an insurance plan – provides a wide range of medical, dental and other health-related services and treatment for people who continue to lack coverage or whose Healthy Michigan Plan application is pending. To qualify, a person must be a resident of Genesee County, over the age of 19 (including those over 65 who do not qualify for Medicare), currently do not have any other health insurance and meet certain income requirements.
Genesee Health Plan is a community-initiated non-profit program designed to provide health care coverage to the uninsured residents of Genesee County. The mission of GHP is to improve the access to the health care system for low-income and indigent Genesee County residents by providing them a medical “home” and providing coverage for health care services through a managed health care system.
