Beginning April 1, 2017, there will be a small increase to some copays for Healthy Michigan Plan beneficiaries. If your income is more than 100 percent of the federal poverty level, there will be a $1 to $2 increase for office visits. This includes dental and vision office visits. Pharmacy copays for preferred medicines and emergency room visits will also have a small increase. Inpatient hospital stays will increase from $50 to $100 per visit. 

Your copay amounts are sent to you through your MI Health account. Every three months you will get a MI Health bill. Your doctor's office can tell you which copay amount will appear on your MI Health statements.
