More than 323,000 Enroll for Healthy Michigan Program
According to Governor Rick Snyder's office, more than 323,000 have enrolled for Michigan's expanded Medicaid program since it first launched earlier this year. The Healthy Michigan Plan extends health care benefits to a half-million low-income residents.
In a news release, Snyder said "the Healthy Michigan Plan is providing hard-working Michiganders with health care coverage they need to lead healthy, productive lives."
The state reports that of the 323,022 that have signed up, more than 230,000 have already enrolled in a Medicaid health plan and that enrollment continues to go smoothly. The program went into effect on April 1st and just three weeks ago passed the 300,000 mark. The Healthy Michigan Plan was signed into law by Gov. Snyder in September 2013.
