Report: Work requirements could cause up to 183,000 Healthy Michigan recipients to lose coverage
from Lansing State Journal
A new report estimates tens of thousands of Michigan residents could lose Medicaid coverage once the state's work requirements go into effect next year. Policy experts and community advocates say that could have serious impacts on Medicaid members, hospitals and Michigan's economy. Manatt Health, a professional services firm that's part of Los Angeles-based law firm Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, released a report Wednesday predicting between 61,000 and 183,000 people covered by the Healthy Michigan Plan — between nine percent and 27 percent of recipients — could lose coverage in a one-year period once the work requirements kick in.
