A public policy group is raising concerns about state lawmaker’s decision not to include funding for education on new Medicaid work requirements as part of the state budget.
In January, Michigan medicaid beneficiaries will be subject to new work requirements.
An estimated quarter of Medicaid recipients in the state could lose coverage due to the new requirements – not because they aren’t eligible but because they won’t know how to navigate the added paperwork.
Alex Rossman is with the Michigan League for Public Policy. He said there were plans to educate residents about the new work requirements – but funding for that education never materialized.
