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 is the repealer, and Senate Bill 348 creates the new tax
The vote was 19 in favor, 13 opposed and 6 not voting
