Wednesday is the anniversary of Healthy Michigan, the state’s popular Medicaid expansion program.

The Michigan Democratic Party is accusing Gov. Rick Snyder’s administration of extending a state contract without competitive bidding.
A recent study finds that while many caregivers believe taking care of a loved one at home has provided more meaning in their life, a majority often feel alone, exhausted, frustrated and overwhelmed.

Gov. Snyder says the effort will give residents “health care coverage they need to lead healthy, productive lives.”
Auditors warn that Michigan could be forced to repay nearly $97 million to the U.S. government.
The state says about 46,100 people have applied for Michigan’s expanded Medicaid plan since it launched last week.

Hundreds of thousands of low-income adults will be eligible for health insurance starting April 1 under Michigan’s expansion of Medicaid.
