Healthy Michigan Plan Evaluation
Has Michigan’s expansion of Medicaid, the public health insurance program for low-income adults, led to improved access to health care and better health? Since 2014, IHPI has been studying these questions and others in collaboration with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and the findings are informing important policy decisions in Michigan and throughout the nation.
IHPI is working with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to evaluate the impact of the Healthy Michigan Plan on the health of Michiganders and the state's health care system.
