Who is eligible for CSHCS?
Several factors decide whether a person is eligible for CSHCS:
- Residency: Must be a Michigan resident
- Citizenship: Must be a US citizen or documented non-citizen admitted for permanent residence or a non-citizen legally admitted migrant farm worker (i.e., seasonal agricultural worker).
- Age: Children must have a qualifying medical condition and be 20 years old or under. Persons 21 and older with cystic fibrosis or certain hereditary blood coagulation disorders commonly known as hemophilia may also qualify.
- Qualifying Medical condition: A MDCH medical consultant reviews each case to determine eligibility. Severity and chronicity of the person's condition as well as the need for treatment by a specialist are factors considered. More than 2,500 diagnoses are potentially eligible.
