Governor Snyder pushes to expand Medicaid in Michigan

LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder wants to make a half-million more low-income Michiganders eligible for Medicaid.

The expansion would be part of the Affordable Care Act, which provides coverage for people within 133-percent of the federal poverty level.  However, the federal government's share of support declines over several years to 90 percent.

Snyder says he has a plan to cover that portion.
