As far as individual health there are 2 types of permanent health insurance available in Michigan, PPO plans and HMO plans.
PPO plans offer a broader network of providers, whereas HMO plans have smaller networks, thus making the plans more affordable. Outside of Open Enrollment (Nov. 1 - Dec. 15), PPO and HMO plans are available for the following life events: Loss of health insurance, moving, getting married, having a baby and adopting a child.

Long term care plans can be tailored to fit one’s budget. Instead of purchasing a plan at $350/day—which is about the going rate for skilled nursing in Michigan—in coverage, your agent can help tailor a plan to cover half the cost per day. This not only helps keep the coverage, but it also reduces the gradual reduction of someone’s estate.
Long term disability is a benefit offered once an individual has been deemed disabled and unable to perform the daily activities—with regards to employment. The shortest elimination period (wait on coverage) for benefits to begin is 30 days. These plans—like long term care—can be tailored to fit one’s budget.
