Health Insurance Claims Tax Calculator
The state of Michigan has changed the way it raises money to support Medicaid.
On Jan. 1, 2012, the state replaced the six percent tax on Medicaid services with a one percent tax on certain health insurance claims. All health insurance carriers operating in Michigan have to pay the new tax.
We’re applying a small increase across all premiums to pay for this Health Insurance Claims Assessment Tax. You’ll notice a new line for the tax on your bill.
For group plans, things work a little differently. The tax only applies to services received by Michigan residents in Michigan, so groups with more out-of-state members will notice less of an increase in their premiums.
To help you figure out how much you’ll have to pay, we’ve put together a quick and easy calculator.
