Michigan Updates in Medicare and Medicaid

In the past month, Michigan has experienced a great deal of Medicare and Medicaid news. On February 11, Governor Jennifer Granholm announced that in her proposed 2011 budget, she would continue the 8% Medicaid cuts to hospitals, physicians, long-term care, and mental health providers. Further, her proposed budget also reintroduced the 3% physician tax that was voted down in the Senate last summer.
