The Michigan Health Endowment Fund, or the Health Fund for short, was created through Public Act 4 of 2013, which authorized certain changes on how Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) operates. The law requires BCBSM to contribute up to $1.56 billion over 18 years to a health endowment fund that benefits Michigan residents, and specified that the fund should focus on children and seniors, with funding in eight areas:
Health services for foster and adopted children
Access to healthy food
Wellness and fitness
Foodborne illness prevention
Our mission is to improve the health of Michigan residents, with special emphasis on the health and wellness of children and seniors, while reducing the cost of health care.
