COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) 2023 Benefit Changes
During the federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE), extra benefits were provided connected to food assistance and Medicaid.
Many changes were made to the Medicaid program's eligibility, administration, and policies to ease rules for providers and prevent Medicaid beneficiaries from losing health insurance. As per recent legislation signed, Michigan will restart Medicaid eligibility renewals soon, and certain waived policies that were in place during the pandemic when the federal PHE ends. Click here to learn more about Medicaid assistance benefit changes.
The additional COVID-19 Food Assistance Emergency Allotment is ending February 2023. The federal government allowed issuance of extra food assistance to address food insecurity. The extra benefits increased assistance amounts to the maximum allowed per eligible household regardless of income level. Recipients will begin receiving regular benefit amounts beginning in March 2023. Click here to learn more about food assistance benefit changes.
