ACA - Medicaid is the better Alternative

Use Healthy Michigan as the alternative to the ACA. Healthy Michigan - http://www.michigan.gov/healthymiplan/ .

Cost containment within the Medicaid rules. Though people who service Medicaid will at least receive something, as oppose to nothing.

Modify the eligibility rules -

Modify the income requirements to cover all.


See if you qualify for the Healthy Michigan Plan.

The Healthy Michigan Plan provides health care benefits to Michigan residents at a low cost so that more people can have health care coverage. Individuals are eligible for the Healthy Michigan Plan if they:
  • Are age 19-64 years
  • Have income at or below 133% of the federal poverty level* ($16,000 for a single person or $33,000 for a family of four)
  • Do not qualify for or are not enrolled in Medicare
  • Do not qualify for or are not enrolled in other Medicaid programs
  • Are not pregnant at the time of application
  • Are residents of the State of Michigan
*Eligibility for the Healthy Michigan Plan is determined through the Modified Adjusted Gross Income methodology.
