Michigan submits waiver request for expanded Medicaid

September 01, 2015

The state of Michigan submitted a waiver request to the federal government in the hopes that it can continue healthcare coverage for nearly 600,000 low-income residents under its expanded Medicaid program. If the federal agency rejects Michigan's request, the expanded Medicaid health program would end by April 30. The CMS has until the end of the year to make a decision.
