Medicaid expansion won't take effect in January

Updated: Tuesday, September 3, 2013 |
Medicaid expansion won
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Hundreds of thousands of low-income Michigan adults will wait an extra three months to qualify for health insurance provided through the federal health care law.

The Republican-controlled state Senate on Tuesday decided against giving immediate effect to Medicaid expansion legislation it passed last week.

The bill now returns to the House, which is expected to give it final approval later in the day.

There's a chance the Senate could ask the House to return the legislation to reconsider when it should go into effect, but Republican Lt. Gov. Brian Calley told The Associated Press it's "unlikely."

Because the bill won't take effect right away, newly eligible residents must wait until late March or early April to qualify instead of as early as Jan. 1.
