March 17, 2020 - COVID-19 What you can do.
March 17, 2020 - HCD is open and seeing all patients, but asks that all patients that exhibit signs of a fever, cough, and trouble breathing do not directly enter the waiting room but call the appointment line (313.822.9801;3;4), or the number located on the lobby sign, so you can be directed to an appropriate person for screening and not expose others.

March 17, 2020 - Wayne County Under Alert. The Wayne County Region 2 Coalition has been activated to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and the efforts to flatten the curve so medical resources are not overwhelmed.
March 9, 2020 - MDHHS reached out to their stakeholders in regards to the recent court ruling on work requirements for the Healthy Michigan Plan (HMP). As MDHHS updated earlier on March 4, 2020, a federal judge ruled that approval of the HMP work requirements was unlawful. It is the department’s responsibility to follow the federal judge’s ruling. This ruling stopped MDHHS’ implementation and enforcement of the work rules. This means HMP participants are no longer required to report work, school or other activities to maintain HMP health care coverage. This change is effective immediately.
MDHHS is notifying individuals of the change online, by mail, and by phone. MDHHS will mail letters to active HMP beneficiaries throughout the month of March 2020.
It is possible work requirements could be restarted because of a future court decision. MDHHS will notify stakeholders if this happens.
Beneficiaries with questions should be referred to the HMP Work Requirements and Exemption Reporting line, which is 1-833-895-4355 (TTY: 1-866-501-5656).
