Posted on March 12, 2021

MHA Executive Vice President Chris MitchellState of Reform published a story March 10 with Chris Mitchell, executive vice president, advocacy & public affairs, discussing the MHA’s priorities for the current Michigan legislative session.

The story reviews several key funding areas that are historically included in the state budget, including support for graduate medical education, rural and critical access hospitals and the Healthy Michigan plan. Mitchell also advocated for the continued use of increased outpatient Medicaid reimbursement rates for all hospitals, which was new for the fiscal year 2020 budget.
