A Michigan healthcare policy expert says it will take time to analyze the potential impact on the state of the proposed Republican replacement for Obamacare.
Dennis Paradis is Executive Director of the Michigan Health Policy Forum.
He says he’s concerned about the impact of its eventual cap on federal funding of Medicaid.
About 630,000 Michigan residents have purchased health insurance because the Affordable Care Act led to Medicaid expansion in the state.
The Healthy Michigan program is funded almost completely with federal subsidies.
