MHA Relieved Medicaid Work Requirements Ruled Invalid

Posted on March 04, 2020

The following statement can be attributed to Brian Peters, CEO of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association.    

The MHA is relieved by the U.S. District Court’s ruling that invalidates Medicaid work requirements in Michigan, which posed a threat to the coverage of tens of thousands of Healthy Michigan Plan recipients. This decision shows that attaching additional personal responsibility requirements that have nothing to do with healthcare access fail to fulfill Medicaid’s objective of providing healthcare coverage to Michigan’s financially vulnerable population.

Ensuring coverage and access for our lower-income community members improves the health and wellness of our state, while having a positive effect on securing and maintaining employment. As a healthcare leader in many of Michigan’s communities, our hospitals will continue to work with patients to promote healthy behaviors that improve health outcomes. In Lansing, the MHA will maintain our efforts to improve and protect access to care for all Michiganders.
