Health Care

  • Support state and federal efforts that enable employers to provide cost-effective health care benefits.
  • Oppose taxes on health insurance claims and premiums as well as health insurance benefit and cost mandates.
  • Support efforts to preserve Michigan’s private health insurance marketplace and oppose efforts to launch a government-run or single-payer system.


Rising health care costs continue to be a significant financial threat to Michigan’s businesses. Policymakers should avoid implementing costly state and federal health insurance mandates and other plan design restrictions and instead focus on implementing market-friendly, consumer-driven reforms that will enable job providers and individuals to purchase affordable coverage in the private health insurance marketplace.
