LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Association of Health Plans (MAHP) executive director Dominick Pallone praised Governor Whitmer for signing the Healthier Michigan Plan (HB 4495 & 4496) into law.
“The bipartisan, proactive actions taken by our state lawmakers to pass the Healthier Michigan Plan will save tax dollars and drive healthier outcomes for Michigan’s most vulnerable populations who experience barriers to getting the health care they need.”
“Our member health plans work to expand access to quality, affordable health care around Michigan. Since adopting the Healthy Michigan Plan nearly a decade ago, our uninsured and uncompensated care rates have significantly improved. This new legislation expands on the success of the original plan and makes changes and modernizations, like updating cost-sharing requirements and health risk assessments.”
