MICHIGAN

Overview

Michigan has enacted a ban on Most-Favored Nation (MFN) clauses in healthcare contracts between providers and health care corporations.  The ban resulted from a dispute between the Department of Justice and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, which prior to the passage of the ACA was the responsible for insuring Michigan residents with pre-existing conditions. Michigan is also engaged with the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to test innovative service delivery and payment reform models.
Although the Michigan Data Collaborative, a nonprofit healthcare data organization at the University of Michigan, built a Multi-Payer Claims Database that began collecting data in 2010, the state has not implemented an All-Payer Claims Database (APCD). The Michigan Data Collaborative has made these efforts to support state-wide care transformation efforts funded by the payers participating in these projects. The database includes approximately 80% of the Michigan healthcare market and includes payers such as Medicare, Medicaid, and the three largest commercial payers in the state. The state introduced an APCD bill in 2015, but the bill has seen no action since then.

STATE BUDGET

Michigan’s fiscal year begins on October 1st and ends on September 30th of the following calendar year. While there is no specific legal time requirement for passage of the budget bills, this task is accomplished prior to the beginning of the new fiscal year. Appropriations bills are usually considered and passed in April by the first house, in early June by the second house, and usually final action is completed in July.
