U-M team to study how well state’s Medicaid expansion plan is working

Since last spring, 477,000 Michiganders have signed up for the Healthy Michigan Plan, a new Medicaid health insurance option offered by the state. Now, U-M researchers will study how well the new plan works, and advise state government on how well it’s living up to what lawmakers intended.

The U-M Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation will evaluate the plan through a five-year contract with the Michigan Department of Community Health.

The study will cover many aspects of the program, which seeks to improve access to high-quality health care and encourage healthy behaviors among low-income Michiganders, while reducing uncompensated care and the number of uninsured residents of the state.
