Trustee Day at the Capitol Examines Important Advocacy and Policy

Posted on August 23, 2019

Michigan capitol buildingThe recently passed law regarding Michigan’s auto no-fault insurance, which gives Michigan drivers the option to purchase different levels of personal injury protection and shifts their coverage following an auto accident to their health insurance, is one area significantly affecting communities and providers. Healthcare board leaders must understand the impact of this and other health policies, good or bad, to educate community members and advocate for changes that positively impact Michigan providers.  

The MHA will host a trustee day at the Capitol from 8:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Oct. 15 at the MHA Capitol Advocacy Center in downtown Lansing. The morning session will review the impact of the auto no-fault law, the state budget and initiatives focused on health equity and improvement. In addition, Medicaid work requirements for Healthy Michigan Plan enrollees will be reviewed, including the administration of the plan, data reporting and how healthcare is funded for low-income residents. After lunch, participants will hear about changes related to access to and funding of behavioral health services, the progress resulting from targeted programs and how communities could strengthen these programs.

There is no charge for the event, but registration is required. For additional information, contact Paige Fults or Erin Steward at the MHA.
