As Gov. Rick Snyder signed the state’s Medicaid expansion bill into law on Monday, September 16, 2013, Michigan Urgent Care Founder and President Mohamed Arsiwala, MD, was among the health care leaders attending the historic event.
“Thousands more Michiganders will have access to quality health coverage and an improved quality of life,” says Dr. Arsiwala. “Medicaid expansion will greatly strengthen Michigan families and ultimately our state as whole.”
Referred to as the “Healthy Michigan Bill”, the expansion of Medicaid received bipartisan support and is a part of the Affordable Care Act .
Medicaid expansion in Michigan is set to begin in April 2014, and will bring health care coverage to nearly a half million residents.
