2014 Senate Bill 961: Revise detail of letting certain disabled workers "buy" Medicaid
  1. Introduced by Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker (R) on May 28, 2014, to amend a law that allows certain disabled individuals who otherwise are not eligible for Medicaid to pay a means-tested fee to get these benefits, so that it conforms with the federal health care law’s Medicaid expansion adopted by the legislature in 2013. The bill would also cap the aggregate premiums collected under this program at $3 million annually.
    • Referred to the Senate Appropriations Committee on May 28, 2014.
