2016 Upcoming Forums

Medicaid Expansion

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Forum Registration CLOSED for the January 18th forum. We are filled to Capacity. The forum video recording will be posted in late January 2017.

Having opened for registration in April 2014, our state’s Healthy Michigan plan or Medicaid expansion plan has served as a model of innovation in health care coverage for income-disadvantaged residents. Moving into its third year of operation, nearly 618,000 low-income Michiganians, including children, elderly, and the disabled have enrolled in Healthy Michigan. Partly supported by the Affordable Care Act -- better known as Obamacare -- continuation of the plan is in question. A new federal administration insists repeal of the American Care Act as the first action of 2017 to be taken in our nation’s capital. This forum will look to a panel of individuals with diverse expertise in health policy to provide insight into possible scenarios for Healthy Michigan’s future.

Speakers and Panelist Info:

  • Larry Martin, Professor of Economics, College of Social Science, Michigan State University
  • Steve Fitton, Principal, Health Management Associates and former State Medicaid Director
  • Amy Zaagman, Executive Director, Michigan Council for Maternal and Child Health
  • Tim Michling, Research Associate, Citizens Research Council of Michigan
