ACA symposium moves beyond the numbers
Numbers have become a prominent part of the Affordable Care Act vocabulary and are used often to explain how the law is changing the ways health care is purchased, accessed and delivered.
Just recently, media reported that more than 600,000 Michiganders had enrolled in the Healthy Michigan Plan, Michigan’s expanded Medicaid program, during the program’s first year of operation.
But beyond the data, how are Michiganders experiencing the Affordable Care Act?
In partnership with the University of Michigan Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation (IHPI) and the School of Public Health, CHRT brought together state government officials, consumers, health plans, health care providers and businesses for Alpena to Zilwaukee: A Symposium on the Affordable Care Act’s Coverage Expansions in Michigan.
