Healthy Michigan will begin April 1st. This is the program which allows adults without dependents and with assets, but little income, to qualify for Medicaid. If you have been told you don't make enough money to get a subsidy for an individual plan, after April 1st, you may apply for coverage. About half the states expanded Medicaid. The States who did not expand Medicaid felt it was a costly program with an unknown future as the Federal matching funds were not committed after 3 years. For Hoosiers, Indiana did not choose to expand Medicaid.
