Schuitmaker Medicaid eligibility bill signed by governor

LANSING, Mich.—Gov. Rick Snyder and Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker, R-Lawton, are flanked by fellow advocates of Public Act 356 of 2012. Schuitmaker’s measure improves current Medicaid eligibility laws. It will allow individuals who wish to work and pay taxes, yet currently receive disability and Medicaid, to be employed to the extent they are able and continue receiving the assistance they need to provide for crucial services.
