Healthy Michigan Plan Second Waiver Submitted
Friday, September 4, 2015
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services submitted the second Healthy Michigan Plan waiver to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on September 1, 2015.
The waiver submission is the next step to ensure the Healthy Michigan Plan is aligned with state law and allow for the continuation of the program which currently provides health care coverage for nearly 600,000 previously uninsured residents.
State law mandates that a second waiver must be submitted by September 1, 2015, and have CMS approval by December 31, 2015. If the State of Michigan does not receive approval of the second waiver, the Healthy Michigan Plan will end on April 30, 2016.
