Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Launches Effort in Five Michigan Cities with Department of Community Health to Enroll Uninsured Children in MIChild
Date:9/28/2007

higan residents is part of our social mission," said Diana Jones, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan vice president of community affairs. "Every child deserves health care. Children who have health coverage are more likely to get preventive services, miss less school, and use less emergency care. As adults, they're healthier when they get a good start.

"We want to educate community leaders, including small business owners, about the local problem and about MIChild. In turn, we expect them to spread the word about MIChild," Jones said. "Their schools, businesses and agencies routinely interact with eligible families."

MIChild provides health and dental coverage for only $10 per month, no matter how many children are in a family. There are no copayments and no deductibles. To qualify, a child must be under age 19, have no comprehensive health insurance and live in Michigan.

To get an application for MIChild, families may dial 888-988-6300. Families may apply online at michigan.gov/michild, or at local health departments and many community agencies.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, a nonprofit organization, provides and administers health benefits to more than 4.6 million members residing in Michigan in addition to members of Michigan-headquartered groups who reside outside the state.
