Proposed Senate Health Care Cuts Will Reduce Health Care Access for All Michigan Citizens

"We understand that the state is in a financial crisis, but further cuts to Michigan's already grossly underfunded health care infrastructure will cause real, human suffering in every one of Michigan's 38 Senate districts," said MHA president Spencer Johnson. "Cuts should not be made that cause human pain. All of our state senators must acknowledge that health care is not just an important function of state government, but an essential one."

"With additional cuts, hospitals may be forced to eliminate programs and reduce services which will affect everyone in a community," Johnson said. "There is no place left to 'trim the fat.'"

Also troublesome is the resulting loss of federal matching dollars from the cuts. For every $1 Michigan spends on Medicaid, the federal government sends an additional $2.33 to the state. So for every $1 the Legislature cuts from Medicaid, Michigan patients and providers lose $3.33 in essential health care funding.

"These federal matching funds are crucial to the ability to provide health care to Michigan residents," said Johnson. "Cutting Medicaid means leaving federal matching dollars on the table."

"Medicaid is not the place to make cuts," echoed MSMS president Richard E. Smith, MD. "Medicaid cuts will make it harder for many Michigan children, the elderly, and the disabled to access health care, and that is unacceptable."

Dr. Smith pointed out that "declining Medicaid reimbursement affects health care access not only for Medicaid patients, but for every patient in Michigan because when a physician leaves a community or hospital services are eliminated, that care is lost to everyone."
