AG Nessel Responds to Judge's Action in Healthy Michigan Plan Ruling

LANSING - Federal Judge James Boasberg granted the State’s motion today for partial summary judgment in Young v. Azar to vacate U.S. Health Secretary Azar’s Dec. 21, 2018 approval of the work and community-engagement requirements in the Healthy Michigan Plan. In response, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued the following statement:

“We are grateful for Judge Boasberg’s swift decision today, which will ensure that Michigan won’t be throwing away taxpayer money to enforce unlawful requirements and cause confusion and concern for tens of thousands of Michigan beneficiaries whose health care coverage was in limbo.”
