People who are capable of receiving both Medicare and Medicaid benefits may be affected by changes the State of Michigan is planning for 2013 and beyond. The state has just released its proposed “Integrated Care for People Who Are Medicare-Medicaid Eligible” plan. This plan will be submitted to the federal government around April 25. Between now and then, people may offer input to the state on the plan. Some legislative hearings are being planned as well.
To help people learn about the plan and to provide input and ask questions of the state, Northern Lakes CMH and the Area Agency on Aging of Northwest Michigan are hosting a Community Information Forum. The forum will be next Tuesday, March 13, 2012 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will be held at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City and by live video feed to our NLCMH Houghton Lake office at 2715 South Townline Road.
We encourage you to attend this important opportunity in either Traverse City or Houghton Lake! Please call us at 231-935-3677 if you know you are coming to help us in planning. Thanks!
