MHA Values Work of Michigan Legislature on FY 2022 State Budget

Posted on September 22, 2021

The following statement can be attributed to Brian Peters, CEO of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association. 

MHA CEO Brian PetersOn behalf of Michigan hospitals and health systems, we value the work of the Michigan Legislature to pass a budget that protect MHA priorities that include fully funding the Healthy Michigan plan, the rural access pool, the obstetrical stabilization fund, and maintaining rate increases for Medicaid and critical access hospitals. We also commend the legislature for expanding postpartum coverage to a full year for mothers on Healthy Michigan. However, more work remains, particularly to address the behavioral health crisis in Michigan. We look forward to working with the legislature through the supplemental appropriations process to secure transformational behavioral health solutions.
