State Activists Brace For Next Round In Healthcare Fight
Health care providers and patient advocates in Michigan are watching to see what’s in a re-vamped Republican health care overhaul. The rollout is expected later this week in Washington.
Providers and patient advocates were not impressed with earlier Republican efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
RoAnne Chaney is with the Michigan Disability Resource Center. Chaney says she’s very concerned about potential cuts to Medicaid.
“I don’t know what planet they’re living on if they think they can cut that much from Medicaid, and not affect people who really need that.”
Chaney says Medicaid rollbacks could affect whether people with disabilities can remain in their homes with assistance from healthcare workers.
