myHealthButton FAQ

Click on the boxes to find answers to some of the frequently asked questions related to the myHealthButton and myHealthPortal applications.

General Information

Yes, if you signed up for the apps when active, but are now inactive on Medicaid, you are still able to login and see their info based on when they were active.
If you are known within the MDHHS system as a Responsible Party, Guardian, Guardian Agency or Case Head, you may view that person’s info by adding them to your account. Learn how to Add a Member.
In myHealthPortal, the language of the application can be changed to Spanish, but not in myHealthButton.

To add an account in the applications, a member must have an accepted “relationship” to the account to be able to view their info.

CHAMPS has “checks” in place to stop any outside contact with protected records. myHealthButton & myHealthPortal use these “checks” in the applications. A record would not be shown in myHealthButton & myHealthPortal if it were protected.

Case relationships in the myHealthButton & myHealthPortal are shown in CHAMPS. When you add other members to your account, the only “relationship” that will work is the relationship that is what is already in CHAMPS.

If you do not know the relationship when adding other members, contact your caseworker or the beneficiary hotline at 1-800-642-3195.

Since myHealthButton & myHealthPortal have access to your health info, it has been made to be protected.

It is not a credit check, answers are not kept, locations are not tracked, and answers do not affect eligibility.
