Support Medicaid Expansion in Ohio and Michigan
posted on: 06/21/2013ProMedica has been actively demonstrating its support for Medicaid expansion in Ohio’s and Michigan’s state budgets. As part of these efforts, we are encouraging our stakeholders to contact their state Representatives and Senators immediately and express strong support for Medicaid expansion.
Not expanding Medicaid coverage to include adults with family incomes up to 138 percent of federal poverty guidelines would have significant consequences for Ohio and Michigan. Forgoing expansion would dismiss a unique opportunity to streamline Medicaid eligibility, promote long-term stability of state finances and create more rational incentives in the healthcare delivery system. This opportunity will help address challenges faced by families without health insurance and the resulting unsustainable impact on Ohio’s and Michigan’s economies and healthcare infrastructures.
