2011 Senate Bill 348 (Revise medical services taxes to get more federal Medicaid money )  by admin on January 1, 2001 
Introduced in the Senate on April 27, 2011, to repeal a 6 percent use tax on medical services health care providers, and replace it with a 1 percent tax on health insurance claims. These taxes are designed to “game” the federal Medicaid system in ways that result in higher federal payments to Michigan’s medical welfare system. This bill creates the new tax

The vote was 26 in favor, 9 opposed and 3 not voting
