Glitches Delay Medicaid For 84,000 In Michigan

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - About 84,000 Michigan residents who qualify for government health insurance are being force to wait for benefits because of glitches in the new federal insurance website.

On Monday Medicaid applications on the healthcare.gov website since Oct. 1 haven't been getting processed because the state hasn't gotten complete applications back from the federal government. The Michigan Department of Community Health says the problem isn't unique to Michigan.

The issue also is expected to affect low-income adults who will start qualifying for Medicaid next month under the federal health care law.

Department spokeswoman Angela Minicuci says the state is trying to contact people who may have applied for Medicaid online to encourage them to apply again at the state website, www.mibridges.michigan.gov.
