LANSING (WKZO) -- The bill that would expand Medicaid health care coverage in Michigan is expected to be considered by the state Senate this week. More than 500-thousand residents would be added to the federal program if the bill is approved.
Medicaid primarily has been given to pregnant women, those caring for a disabled person, or someone who has a disability. The measure is supported by Governor Rick Snyder but has little support from Republicans in the state legislature.
If the law is passed, it must still be approved by the federal government.
