Medicaid expanding in Mich.
LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Governor Rick Snyder says the Obama administration has signed off on Michigan's plan to expand Medicaid in the state.
The new plan will expand to include more than 320,000 low-income Michigan residents.
Snyder made the announcement Monday night that Michigan received a waiver of certain provisions of the federal health care law.
The approval means Michigan can extend Medicaid availability to people making up to 133-percent of the federal poverty level.
