Michigan hospitals could get $6.5 million for uninsured
Hospitals that treat Michigan's 1.2 million uninsured people will get a $6.5-million boost from the federal stimulus plan in 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced. But the announcement came with a warning: The financial boost depends on states exhausting the 2009 money the department gives them to cover the increased costs associated with treating uninsured people, such as having to use emergency rooms for nonemergency conditions.
