MI reached its health insurance enrollment goals 8 months early
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) announced Thursday that the state had reached its first-year goal of signing up 322,000 residents for the Healthy Michigan Plan eight months early. About 477,000 Michigan residents are eligible for the Health Michigan Plan, the state’s expanded Medicaid program for low-income residents. To be eligible, individuals cannot qualify for or be enrolled in Medicare or other Medicaid programs and must have income at or below 133 percent of the poverty level. Michigan also exceeded enrollment predictions for its individual marketplace, with 272,539 enrolling by March 31, according to the Detroit Free Press. The estimate was about 190,000.
