2011 House Bill 5014

House Roll Call 570: Passed

To appropriate an extra $351.7 million for several items, including $119 million in mostly federal money for incentive payments to health care providers and facilities to adopt state-approved electronic health care record systems, and $201 million from a <A href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2011-SB-348">new 1 percent tax</A> on health insurance claims designed to “game” the federal Medicaid system to get higher federal payments to Michigan’s medical welfare system, and additonal amounts for related items. The House removed $9.8 million added by the Senate to create a state “Obamacare exchange” to administer “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” subsidies, $8.6 million added to subsidize doctor training programs, around $20 million added for other Medicaid-related disbursements, plus lesser amounts for other state programs.
