More than 40 more Michigan employers and unions will get help providing health coverage to early retirees and their families.
They're among nearly 1,000 additional employers and unions approved nationwide to participate in the $5 billion Affordable Care Act's Early Retiree Reinsurance Program. There are now 142 participants from Michigan in the program.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Monday announced the additions. They include Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Group LLC, as well as the communities of Warren, Port Huron, Oak Park and Livonia.
The first round of nearly 2,000 was approved in August.
