  2. Michigan First Healthcare Plan • Goals: • Provide access to affordable health care coverage to more than half of a million uninsured Michigan citizens • Reduce health care costs • Meet goals without expanding state spending

  3. Health Care Cost Drivers • Too many people do not have insurance coverage- • 1.2 million in Michigan • Uninsured get care in ERs and hospitals once their medical problems have become severe • We all pay • Employer premium subsidy ($274/person and $730/family) • Grant programs • Bankruptcies

  4. Health Care Cost Drivers • Health care does not use information technology extensively • Increases administrative costs • Redundant diagnostic tests because information not available at point of care • Increases opportunities for medical errors and lowers quality of care • Potential for 20% cost savings ( ONCHIT, 2005)

  5. Health Care Cost Drivers • Lifestyle ( Obesity, physical inactivity and smoking) • CDC estimates that 23 percent of employer premiums for those over 40 can be attributed to the costs of obesity and sedentary lifestyles • CDC attributes 8 percent of the cost of care to smoking

  6. Governor Granholm’s Plan • Making Health Care affordable and Accessible in Michigan • Step 1…The Michigan First Healthcare Plan • Step 2…Advancing Health Information Technology • Step 3…Promoting Healthy Lifestyles

Financing Summary • Necessary state match will come from funds already spent in Michigan on health care for the uninsured • Federal funding will come from: • Federal funds Michigan has saved the federal government in the past • Funds the federal government would have spent without this waiver

  19. State Match Financing Strategy • We will build on financing mechanisms already approved by the federal government and in use in Michigan • We will import strategies they have approved in other states • If necessary, we will propose new strategies unique to Michigan
