Top Issues - Healthcare

The Michigan Health & Hospital Association will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2019.
The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) have issued new and revised rules as part of the ongoing effort to fight Michigan’s opioid crisis. 
Members of the 100th Michigan Legislature were officially sworn into office Jan. 9, marking the start of the 2019-2020 legislative calendar.
The 2018 lame-duck session came to a close the morning of Dec. 21 following marathon overnight sessions in both the House and the Senate.
We applaud the House’s decision to table the lame-duck discussion on auto no-fault.
Once again, the House is poised to take a vote on an auto no-fault insurance proposal that is being sold as a “grand bargain” that, upon review, provides no guaranteed or permanent rate relief for drivers and fewer protections for those injured in car accidents.
The MHA is urging its members to contact their state legislators and ask them to vote no on any effort to dismantle Michigan’s auto no-fault insurance law in the final days of the lame-duck session.
The Legislature has one week remaining in its legislative schedule for 2018. More than 250 bills have passed from the House or Senate chamber in the first three weeks of action, marking an increase in activity compared to past end-of-year sessions.
The MHA Legislative Policy Panel convened its last meeting of the year Dec. 6 to discuss legislative activity during the lame-duck session in progress and preview how the 2018 election outcome will impact healthcare policy in 2019.
Midterm elections are finally over, but the MHA is just beginning to evaluate the impact of the results and how the new administration and legislators will affect healthcare in Michigan.
Voters will be heading to the polls Tuesday, Nov. 6, and casting ballots for the key decision-makers on healthcare policy for the next two to four years.
In a Nov. 1 Detroit Free Press article, Laura Appel, senior vice president and chief innovation officer at the MHA, spoke to reporter J.C. Reindl about the impact of the Affordable Care Act on Michigan five years after the program launched.
