Medicaid substitute bill may be ready by next week

A group of lawmakers working on Michigan’s Medicaid expansion are meeting today to discuss their progress.

Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville (R-Monroe) said today he expects a Medicaid substitute bill could be ready by next week.

Richardville put together the group earlier this month. The workgroup wants to place certain conditions on Medicaid expansion in Michigan -- reforms that may need federal approval.

MPRN will report on the group’s findings.
