Healthy Michigan Enrollment On Pace

Program on its way to hitting enrollment goal.

FILE - In this Feb. 7, 2013 file photo, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder presents his third state budget before the state Legislature in Lansing, Mich. Snyder is taking questions under oath as labor unions and other creditors in Detroit�s bankruptcy try to understand why he signed off on the largest public filing in U.S. history. Three months later, no assets have been divided and no major deals have been struck. In fact, a judge soon will hold a trial to determine if Detroit even is eligible to be in Bankruptcy Court to restructure at least $18 billion in long-term debt. Snyder�s answers during a three-hour deposition Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013, can be turned into evidence at the trial. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)

It shouldn't be long before the state hits its enrollment goal for its medicaid expansion plan. Since "Healthy Michigan" went into effect on April 1, nearly 302,000 people have signed up. The state hoped to have 320,000 enrollees in the program's first year. "Healthy Michigan" is for people between 19 and 64 years old who are low-income and not eligible for Medicaid or Medicare.
