Registration Open for Trustee Day at the Capitol

Posted on April 06, 2018

Michigan capitol buildingHealthcare leaders recognize the uncertainty of healthcare policy dictated by federal and state lawmakers. One example is a recently introduced bill that would institute work requirements for Medicaid recipients, potentially jeopardizing medical coverage for an entire year for Medicaid recipients who simply fail to meet a reporting requirement. Therefore, it is critical that both hospital administration and governing bodies understand the impact of health policy, whether good or bad, to enable them to advocate for changes that positively impact Michigan providers.  

To facilitate that understanding, the MHA will host a trustee day at the Capitol from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. May 15 at the MHA Capitol Advocacy Center, with breakfast starting at 8:30 a.m. The first part of the advocacy day will provide critical updates on budget reconciliation and state initiatives focused on behavioral health and the opioid epidemic. Attendees will tour the state Capitol and have lunch, and afterward hear about the latest developments on work requirements for Medicaid enrollees and quality transparency. There is no charge for the event, but registration is required. For additional information, contact Paige Fults or Erin Steward at the MHA.
