Michigan Drug Coverage Changes

Last update: Oct. 1, 2020

Drug coverage will have changes starting Oct. 1, 2020.

This change is because of a Michigan Department of Health and Human Services policy change.

If you filled a drug that will no longer be covered, you will get a letter. Your doctor may need to switch you to a different drug or request that you be allowed to keep taking a drug that will no longer be covered.

You will be able get the same drug until Sept. 30, 2020.

What should you do?

If you get a letter, please talk to your doctor about the changes in the letter as soon as possible. The letter may provide other drug options. If your doctor feels that you cannot use another drug, they may request a prior authorization for the drug you are taking. It is important that you follow these steps, so you won’t have issues getting drugs after Oct. 1, 2020.
