2018 MIDTERM ELECTION

Time: D H M S

Michigan: ACA Medicaid expansion up to over 334K (67% of total eligible)

While all the fuss & bother over the Halbig case continues to get bopped around by every pundit under the sun (including me? Do I count as a pundit now?), the ACA itself continues to actually, you know, work as another 8,400 people are added to Medicaid via the expansion program here in Michigan:

Healthy Michigan Plan Enrollment Statistics

Beneficiaries with Healthy Michigan Plan Coverage: 334,599
(Includes beneficiaries enrolled in health plans and beneficiaries not required to enroll in a health plan.)

*Statistics as of July 21, 2014 
*Updated every Monday at 3 p.m.

(Note that this is actually as of a week ago...there should be another update later this afternoon...)

As there are an estimated 500K eligible for the expansion program, this means that Michigan has already reached 2/3 of the total in less than 4 months.
