The Tencon Health Plan is a community sponsored, non-profit corporation that helps low income, uninsured adults living in Crawford, Kalkaska, Lake, Manistee, Mason, Mecosta, Missaukee, Newaygo, Oceana and Wexford counties receive medically necessary health care services. Individuals residing in these counties may be eligible for programs offered through Tencon Health Plan.
The Tencon Health Plan administers the Adult Benefits Waiver (ABW) program, or Plan A. The local Department of Human Services or DHS (formerly called the Family Independence Agency or FIA) determines whether an individual is eligible for Plan A. Plan A provides basic medical care to low-income, childless adults who do not qualify for Medicaid. It is not insurance.
To find out if you are eligible for the Plan A program, contact your local DHS office:
Tencon Health Plan's Plan B, or BASIC plan, provides basic medical care for those individuals who do not qualify for the Plan A program, Medicaid, Medicare or any other health care program. It is not insurance. Your local County Health Department determines whether an individual is eligible for Plan B.
Tencon Health Plan's Plan Rx provides coordinated access to prescription drugs at a low cost to those individuals whose gross income is 200% or less of the federal poverty level and that do not qualify for any prescription drug program. Your local County Health Department determines whether an individual is eligible for Plan Rx.
The Prescription Drug Discount Program helps individuals with limited or no prescription coverage to obtain medications at lower prices at their pharmacy.
To find out if you are eligible for Plan B (BASIC), Plan Rx, or to enroll in the Prescription Drug Discount Program, please contact your local Health Department:
