After you apply. DHHS has 45 days to process your application. 

Open and read all mail from DHHS for requested verifications or decision letters.

Turn in all requested documents by the due date listed on the request (called a Verification Checklist or VCL).  Your application will be denied if you do not turn in the information requested by your DHHS caseworker (specialist) by the due date.  It is best to fax or upload your documents so you have proof you turned in the information.

You will receive a decision (determination) about your Medicaid health care coverage from DHHS. If you think the decision is wrong, contact the agency who helped you to file a hearing.

You will receive a yearly renewal (redetermination) that must be completed andreturned for your coverage to continue.  If you do not return the form, you will be   canceled and have to reapply. 

If you have questions, get help from an agency.  To find an agency, visit healthcarecounts.org/get-help or call the Washtenaw Health Plan (734)544-3030.
