Michigan Association of Health Plans

Health care is a rapidly changing industry which requires constant monitoring. We navigate the appropriations process to assure that Medicaid Managed Care Organizations remain appropriately funded.  

Midwest Strategy Group has consistently secured increases in the state budget to keep pace with the rising cost of providing health care to Michigan’s Medicaid beneficiaries and the increased taxes resulting from the Affordable Care Act- over $176 million of new funding in Fiscal Year 2015 alone. We also use the budget process to drive public policy by securing funding for best practices and innovative initiatives.

MAHP has been very fortunate to be one of Midwest Strategy Group’s clients for several years. The issues facing health insurance and the managed care industry remain multi—faceted between appropriations, regulations and enabling legislation. This requires that we engage consulting services, such as Midwest Strategy Group, who know the right buttons to push and the right time for action. This has proven to be a successful recipe for our efforts in the past—was successful this year and I look forward to maintaining our partnership over the coming years and view Nicole and her group as essential to our future success. I would heartily recommend Midwest Strategy Group to other organizations.
