Who is this for?

Michigan Health Insurance – Customer Service – How To

Michigan clinics that provide free health or dental care to uninsured and underinsured residents.

Because Blue Cross believes that health care and healthy communities go together, we give a hand to free health clinics in Michigan. 

Our Strengthening the Safety Net grants help clinics reach low-income residents who might not get care otherwise. If you’d like to apply for a grant, here’s the information you need.

Grant eligibility and categories

Your clinic is eligible to apply if it:

  • Provides free or low-cost health care for uninsured and underinsured individuals including medical, dental, mental health, vision, pharmacy and specialty care services
  • Has volunteer workers

Categories for 2018 haven’t been announced yet.
