Despite closure of physical office, GHP providing essential services to assist Genesee County residents and families with health care coverage
FLINT – Genesee Health Plan (GHP) continues to provide health care coverage services to Genesee County residents by phone following the closure of its physical office to the public due to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s recent “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order.
“Genesee Health Plan’s priority is to make sure people get the health coverage they need and have access to essential services,” said GHP President and CEO Jim Milanowski. “Now more than ever, GHP’s health care enrollment services are needed to help those in our community have access to coverage amid the COVID-19 epidemic. GHP is an essential service because we provide access to health care coverage enrollment, ensuring Genesee County residents have access to basic health coverage.”
GHP serves thousands of hard-working people, families and seniors who would not have access to primary and preventive health care services and provides basic health care coverage for adults who don’t receive health insurance from their employer, lost their job or don’t qualify for Medicaid.
Genesee County residents, including those who have been laid off or have recently lost their job due to COVID-19 and do not currently have health care coverage, can call GHP toll-free at 844-232-7740 or locally at 810-232-7740, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to receive the following assistance and services:
“We want to make sure our community and current GHP members know that we are still available to help by phone with a variety of services,” said GHP Director of Operations Linda Gibson. “We are grateful to be able to continue our work over the phone in order to protect the health and safety of our staff and community members.”
Genesee Health Plan (GHP) is Genesee County’s plan for better health which began with the vision to have a community where each person has equal and affordable opportunity to live a healthy life. GHP is a nonprofit health care organization that was launched in 2001 to provide health care coverage and life-saving services to the uninsured residents of Genesee County.
