> Michigan Child Health Insurance Program
MIChild is a health care program administered by the Department of Community Health. It is for the low income uninsured children of Michigan's working families. MIChild has a higher income limit than Healthy Kids. There is only an income test. Like Healthy Kids, MIChild is for children who are under age 19. There is a $10 per family monthly premium for MIChild. The $10 monthly premium is for all of the children in one family. The child must be enrolled in a MIChild health and dental plan in order to receive services. Beneficiaries receive a comprehensive package of health care benefits including vision, dental, and mental health services.
