Medicaid Expansion Will Have Positive Impact on Northern Michigan

Posted: Updated:

The Governor's budget plan would also expand Medicaid, potentially helping more than 400,00 uninsured adults in Michigan.

Local health care providers say there certainly would be an impact, but it will only be a positive one.

Munson Medical Center and Traverse Health Clinic, both in Traverse City, say they hope this will encourage people to seek treatment sooner. 

9 and 10's Meredith Barack and photojournalist Jeff Blevins spoke with the local health care providers about the impact it would have on them.
