Healthy Michigan Plan

The Berrien County Health Department can help you find health care insurance or a more affordable way to access health insurance coverage. Our staff can help you figure out which health insurance programs you are eligible for and what will work best for you. For enrollment information and assistance on any of the health insurance programs, please call the Medical Social Worker at 269-927-5660.
