Monthly Medicaid Documentation Harassment

Sep 16, 2019

Over a year ago, the legislature in Lansing, Michigan passed, and the governor signed, a law that will lead to a lot of people being cut off Medicaid health insurance. This law starts on January 1, 2020.

Michigan is not the only state adding “work requirements” to the Affordable Care Act Medicaid expansion. Based on what has already happened in other states, it is estimated that a quarter of a million people in Michigan will be cut off Medicaid.

The U.S. is the richest country in the world. Everyone should have the right to decent health care. A fight is needed to get everyone covered.
