Health Coverage

Get Access to Healthcare

If you live on Lansing’s Eastside, Allen Neighborhood Center can enroll you in the Ingham Health Plan or Medicaid. We can also help you set up an appointment with a local doctor through our Medical Homes Program.

Eligibility

You may be eligible for some form of Medicaid if one of the following is true:

  • You have a low income
  • You are 65 or older
  • You are pregnant
  • You have a disability
  • For Medicaid, you must be a U.S. citizen for full coverage. In some cases (such as pregnancy), non-citizens can get coverage for emergency services. Learn all of the specifics at the Michigan Department of Community Health.
  • If you are not sure if you are eligible, you can always contact or visit the Allen Neighborhood Center and we will help you find out.

If you are not eligible for Medicaid, you might be eligible for the Ingham Health Plan if one of the following is true:

  • You are unemployed, laid-off, or have a low income
  • Your employer does not offer you affordable insurance
  • You are not a U.S. citizen
  • You cannot get IHP if you eligible for Medicaid, Medicare, MiChild, or Healthy Kids. If you are eligible for Medicaid, we will enroll you for that instead.
  • If you are not sure if you are eligible, you can always contact or visit the Allen Neighborhood Center and we will help you find out.

Ingham Health Plan (IHP)

IHP is basic healthcare coverage for Ingham County residents. There are no premium costs, and you only pay a small co-pay for most services when you have IHP. Some of the things IHP (Plan B) covers are:

  • Doctor visits ($5 co-pay)
  • Specialist services ($5 co-pay)
  • Lab tests  ($0)
  • Radiation ($0)
  • Prescriptions ($5 for generic; $10 for brand name)

IHP does not cover emergency room visits, dental, or vision. Find a full list of things IHP does not cover on their website here.

If you want Allen Neighborhood Center to enroll you in IHP, remember to bring with you Proof of Residency (license, ID, bill) and Proof of Income (paycheck stubs, unemployment, or other proofs) when you visit us.

If you were kicked off of IHP, contact ANC to see if you can re-enroll.

The 4 minute video below produced by CEDAM explains the Ingham Health Plan and introduces you to some Ingham county residents who have used IHP.

Medicaid gives health coverage to people who have a limited income. The rules for Medicaid are different for every state. Michigan has a lot of different Medicaid programs, and you can see all of them on the Michigan Department of Community Health website. Some of the things Medicaid covers are:

  • Doctor visits
  • Lab tests and X-rays
  • Inpatient and outpatient hospital services
  • Dental and vision for children
  • Prescriptions
