MI Healthcare Enrollment Exceeds Expectations
Gov. Rick Snyder today announced that after less than four months, enrollment for the Healthy Michigan Plan already has surpassed its first-year goal of 322,000. As of today, Michigan has 323,022 Michigan residents enrolled in the program. The Healthy Michigan Plan extends health care benefits to a half-million low-income residents. Enrollment for the plan began April 1. Snyder says reaching the first-year goal in only 14 weeks shows that the state is well on track for improving the quality of life for our Michiganders. Of the new enrollees, more than 230,000 already have enrolled in a Medicaid health plan.
