MHA CEO Brian PetersThis has been an unprecedented year and the Michigan Health & Hospital Association applauds the signing today by Gov. Whitmer of the fiscal year 2021 state budget that provides much-needed support and relief to Michigan hospitals. This funding protects mothers and babies, supports critical access hospitals and provides the first statewide outpatient Medicaid fee increase since 2002 – all of which are vital to maintain access to care for patients across our state. We thank the state Legislature and Gov. Whitmer and her administration for completing a state budget that puts healthcare first.
