Medical Plan Assistance Program (MPAP)

The Medical Plan Assistance Program provides medical coverage with no premiums or reduced premiums to many eligible caregivers, based on family size and household income. Caregivers who have already been approved through Optum for MPAP assistance for 2023, that assistance will continue and they do not need to reapply. If a caregiver was previously denied for MPAP and their family size or income has changed, they can re-apply for MPAP at any time throughout the year.
