DETROIT (WWJ) - A coalition of the state’s leading healthcare advocates are urging uninsured citizens in Michigan to consider enrollment in the state’s new health insurance program.

WWJ’s Rob Sanford reports that the high-risk pool began offering coverage last fall. The program is being funded entirely by subscriber premiums together with an estimated $141 million in federal subsidies. 

The program administrator Scott Wilkerson says even those with pre-existing conditions can sign up.

“There is a whole list on our website , www.hipmichigan.com, it’s also not limited to those 30 or 40 listed on the website, it can also be any condition that actually caused you to be denied for insurance,” says Wilkerson.

The coverage is on a first-come, first-served basis until the funding runs out.
