Governor Approves FY 2018 State Healthcare Budget

Posted on July 14, 2017

On July 14, Gov. Rick Snyder approved the fiscal year (FY) 2018 omnibus budget bill during a special signing ceremony in Grand Rapids. Public Act 107 of 2017 comprises most state department budgets, including the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), while school aid and higher education funding are in a separate omnibus bill.

As reported by the MHA in the June 8 article, “State Healthcare Budget for FY 2018 Moves Closer to Completion,” the FY 2018 budget fully protects the state funding necessary to continue the Healthy Michigan Plan, as well as $163 million in graduate medical education and enhanced payments for obstetrics and small or rural hospitals.

Contact information for all state elected officials is available online through the MHA’s Legislative Action Center.

Members with questions about the state budget or other advocacy issues should contact Chris Mitchell at the MHA.
