Join GDAHC and our partners as we increase access to care in Michigan
Find MI Care and Pathway to Health Care are free resources
Access to quality health care is improving across Michigan. Yet, we have not completely eliminated the gaps.

More than 600,000 Michigan residents -- typically the under-served populations -- have health care benefits through Healthy Michigan. In addition, there are consumers traditionally insured through employers, who purchase individually, and subscribe on the federal health exchange. Michigan ranks as one of the highest in the number of insured in America. However, reports indicate that several hundred thousand Michiganders are without health insurance and/or a primary care provider. In Detroit, approximately 100,000 residents do not have health insurance. 

How do we improve access to care? Because healthy people does mean a healthy economy for us all. And, how do we ensure that once Michigan consumers are covered, they stay covered.

The Greater Detroit Area Health Council [GDAHC], with the support of our funding partners, members and collaborators, has free resources you may share with the uninsured, under-insured and those who have yet to select their primary care physician.

Find MI Care, powered by GDAHC, is a free website and mobile app to find free and low-cost health care close to home in the seven county southeast Michigan region (and expanding to more counties). Emergency Department discharge nurses may use Find MI Care to help patients choose a primary care physician.  Health clinics and social service agencies may also use Find MI Care for your clients.

The animated Pathway to Healthcare videos, produced by GDAHC in partnership with Cabrini Clinic, outlines the steps to enroll in health care benefits, what to do during the first doctor's visit, and how to maintain benefits. They are intended for the uninsured, under-insured or the newly insured -- especially consumers who may have never seen a doctor, who may have literacy issues, and/or who need education regarding health care benefits. The Pathway to Healthcare English version is available online. Spanish, Arabic, French and Bengali language versions will release in 2016.
