Medicaid Readiness

Under our ‘Meet The Moment Initiative’, The Detroit MOTTEP Foundation is excited to partner with the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan in supporting state efforts to increase individuals’ knowledge of Medicaid services and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.  Through these efforts, we are helping enrollees live longer, healthier lives. 


With the 3-year pandemic and the health emergency declaration ending in May 2023, now the redetermination starts – people don’t know this is happening – NKFM and Detroit MOTTEP Foundation’s goal with this initiative is to spread the word to keep your coverage and what to do if you don’t qualify now and what options are out there for you.


Through this partnership we are in the unique position to bring relevant and important health information to communities who might not otherwise have access to it.
