Tri-County Community Health Guide

The development of this document was supported in part by cooperative agreement No. PS18-1807 with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through Eaton Regional Education Service Agency. The opinions, findings, and conclusions expressed are those of the presenter(s) and do not represent the views or official position of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Resources include Community Health Care Centers, Sexual Health Services, Mental/Behavioral Health Services, Tobacco and Vaping Quit Support, Support Groups, Support Lines, Physical Activity, Community Centers, Nutrition and Food Assistance

A word about using this guide and helpful tips for navigating community resources...

  • This guide is broken down by section to help get you quickly to your specific need.
  • Some state level programs like MiBridges have streamlined applications to assess your eligibility for benefits in many areas at once (e.g., food assistance, child care, state emergency relief, cash assistance and health care coverage).
  • No guide can cover every resource in a community. If you belong to a particular faith community, civic organization, neighborhood association, or local city or township group, it never hurts to inquire about resources available. A safe way to ask if you want to remain anonymous could be, “What resources can I tell people your organization offers to those in need?” or “Where in this community can I refer people to for help with…?”. Some communities have mutual aid Facebook groups to share resources in which you can ask for recommendations. 
  • For a completely confidential way to get help, call 2-1-1 for information and referral to community and social services, such as ESL classes, financial assistance programs, health clinics, or counselling services. 211 is free, confidential, multilingual and available 24 hours a day. You do not have to give your name or personal details to get information.
  • Don’t give up! There can be waiting periods for appointments, applications to fill out and education courses tied to some types of assistance. Others are more simple to access.
  • If you are in urgent need, make sure to let people know, they may have other suggestions for quicker help or support. Always call 911 for emergencies. 
  • If someone does not have a resource you need in general, ask about referrals to other agencies or providers who may be able to help.
  • We will update this guide every other year, so please let us know if you see information that is missing or incorrect.
  • If you have questions or updates for the guide please contact hmakimaa@eatonresa.org

Resources for Low Cost of Free Computer / Internet Access

How to Get the Most Out of Mental Health Services

  • Write ideas down beforehand. This way you won’t forget them.
  • Ask lots of questions. Especially if you don’t understand why you are being asked to talk about or do certain things.
  • Go into your sessions with a positive attitude. Keeping an open mind and positive attitude helps you get the most out of your counseling sessions.
  • Don’t be thrown off by note-taking. The mental health professional uses notes for remembering important points.
  • Understand your confidentiality rights.

About Health Insurance and Mental/Behavioral Health Coverage

  • The State of Michigan offers several medical assistance programs. Use MI Bridges to apply for assistance, check your eligibility status and manage your account. External Linkhttps://newmibridges.michigan.gov
  • Medicaid and CHIP provide no-cost or low-cost health coverage for eligible children in Michigan. Call 1-888-988-6300 to talk to someone in Michigan or check out the state websites below. Medicaid/CHIP information in Michigan:
    • Healthy Kids Program Information
    • Apply for Healthy Kids
    • MIChild Program Information

About Health Insurance and Mental/Behavioral Health Coverage

  • Guide to Using Employer-Sponsored Health Coverage and Employee Assistance Programs
    • Ask if your employer offers an Employee Assistance Program. Check with your Human Resources Department to see if your employer offers an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). EAPs offer confidential help to employees and/or their immediate family members in dealing with personal problems. If needed, your EAP Counselor will help you access your health insurance benefits and connect you to professionals that offer more specialized care.
    • Look on the back of your insurance card for a Customer Service number. Usually, this is a 1-800 number. The person who is the primary cardholder should call if possible. Information generally will not be given out to anyone else.
    • Ask to speak with Customer Service. You may have to provide your insurance number or other information to identify yourself, such as your (the primary cardholder’s) address, ZIP code, phone number, or social security number.
    • Ask that the representative tell you exactly what type of plan you have. For example, some individuals have Blue Cross Blue Shield, but the plan type may vary from person to person and from employer to employer (e.g., Community Blue, Blue Care Network, etc.).
    • Ask what your mental health benefits and what your co-pays are. Often carriers will pay a certain percentage, leaving you to pay the rest up front at the time of service (the co-pay). Also, different plans allow different amounts of service (# of sessions) per year, or there may be a deductible to be met out of pocket before the benefit will be covered.
    • Ask what services are covered, and what you need to do in order for them to be covered. As with physical health coverage, mental health coverage often requires a referral from an identified professional or will cover certain facilities instead of others. Be sure to ask: Do you need to be referred by your primary care doctor for mental health services to be covered? Does your insurance cover individual therapy? How many sessions? Do they cover emergency hospital stays or emergency mental health assessments (such as crisis services)? What facilities are covered?
    • Ask who the Preferred Providers or In-Network providers are. Some insurance plans will only cover certain professionals who have gone through a process to be registered with that particular insurance company or insurance plan. Some insurance plans have “preferred providers,” or “in-network” professionals, who have
      gone through this process and are registered, for whom the insurance company will cover more of the cost. They may also have “out-of-network” professionals, who are not registered with the insurance company. You may have to pay more out of pocket to see these individuals.
    • Ask for a list of these professionals. Ask the insurance company to send you a list by mail, or help you navigate their website to find an online list. Asking the customer service rep to do this with you while you are on the phone with them can be helpful. When you receive the list and choose a service provider, always call them directly and ask if they still take your insurance prior to setting up an appointment. Sometimes online lists of professionals covered by an insurance company are not up-to-date. The provider will know if they are still working with your insurance company.
    • Ask your provider what the co-pay is; if it is more than you can afford, ask your provider if they offer their fee on a “sliding scale” or a “time of service fee.”
    • Don’t give up! Be persistent. If you need assistance at any point, ask for help.
