Michiganders from multiple racial and ethnic backgrounds say their health has improved and they have access to regular care through a doctor’s office, after enrolling in the state’s Medicaid expansion for low-income adults, a new study finds. The improvements were especially pronounced among low-income white, Black and Latino Michiganders. The study, published in the October issue of Health Affairs, is based on three years of data from detailed surveys of enrollees in the Healthy Michigan Plan. CBSSM's Dr. Susan Goold was senior author.
