Easy to Fall through the Cracks

Jul 23, 2023

Michigan has been sending out Medicaid re-certification notices for those who have Medicaid and are due to renew.

Because of the official Covid emergency ending, most who have been receiving Medicaid will have to re-qualify based on current income information. If a person doesn’t respond, their case will automatically close.

It seems as if the Federal government, which primarily funds Medicaid and sets a lot of the rules, is counting on being able to cut a lot of people off. In some states this process started earlier, and over 100,000 people have already been cut off.

In the wealthiest country in the world, why is healthcare-for-all not happening?!
