2014 Senate Bill 893

House Roll Call 319: Passed

To re-impose a 6 percent use tax on the managed care health care providers (hospitals) that provide most Medicaid services, which is designed to “game” the federal Medicaid program in ways that result in higher federal payments to Michigan’s medical welfare establishment (including those same hospitals). This tax had been suspended 2011 in favor of different version, which did not raise enough to maximize the extra federal increase potential.
