Information about enrolling in the Medicaid fee-for-service program can be found at: http://www.michigan.gov/mdch/0,1607,7-132-2945_42542_42543_42546-104293–,00.html. The Medicaid website provides information about services covered by fee-for-service payments and payment amounts: http://www.michigan.gov/mdch/0,1607,7-132-2943_4860—,00.html.
In order to retain access to all Medicaid patients in the state, providers must also connect to the managed care plans individually.

Some Michigan Medicaid Program beneficiaries are enrolled in managed care plans, called the “Medicaid Health Plans.”
