Phone Assistance Guidance Update

We know that many MI Bridges Navigation Partners will continue to work remotely for a period of time. We are extending the guidance for providing assistance to clients over the phone to July 31st. MDHHS understands that many of our MI Bridges Navigation Partners have moved away from providing in-person assistance with MI Bridges and are wondering how they can provide assistance to clients over the phone. In an effort to better support our MI Bridges Community Partners who still are providing services via the phone, we have developed the following guidance on how to provide this assistance with MI Bridges account creation and online applications for benefits. This is a temporary measure that is only in place until July 31st and is subject to change. MDHHS will provide updates as processes/policies are changed.
