MICH.: “Legislature could vote on adding HMO, direct primary care pilots to state 2018 budget”

By Jay Greene

April 13, 2017 11:52 a.m. – Michigan House and Senate committees are preparing to vote next week on a $25 billion state fiscal year 2018 health budget proposal that could include boilerplate language to mandate pilot studies to test integration of physical and behavioral health services by Medicaid HMOs and a separate boilerplate directive for direct primary care providers.  Mental health advocates have been lobbying Rep. Edward “Ned” Canfield, R-Sebawaing; Rep. Sue Allor, R-Wolverine; Sen. Mike Shirkey, R-Clarklake, and others to simply follow the so-called Section 298 Workgroup report that called for wide-ranging improvements in the current quasi-public mental health system.
