|MSMS President Ken Elmassian, DO, speaks with WILX-TV this week about Medicaid expansion, calling it "great for patients."|
After a marathon session, the Michigan House of Representatives on June 13 voted 76-31—with 28 Republicans joining 47 Democrats and one Independent—to pass House Bill 4714, which will expand Medicaid eligibility to more than 400,000 people. MSMS has worked closely with key leaders such as bill sponsors Rep. Matt Lori (R-Constantine) and Rep. Al Pscholka (R-Stevensville), and Rep. Mike Shirkey (R-Clarklake), who chairs the committee that steered the bill to the House floor.
The bill now moves to the Senate.
Physicians must contact senators and urge them to pass the bill before next Thursday, which is their last session day before summer break.
