We Interviewed The State of Michigan – MMMP

Posted on | March 2, 2013 | No Comments

The State of Michigan is still undecided on when they will implement the new 2-year renewal option. Amendments made to the act during the middle of December, 2012 indicated that the registry program would be implementing a new 2-year renewal mandate, but after a lengthy discussion with one of the representatives of the program it looks as though there is no definitive timeline for when they will actually make cards valid for 2 years. So now patients who are renewing around the April time-frame when the 2-year renewal was supposed to go into effect are left in the dark to guess if their cards will  be selected for the 2-years or if they will join the many who will only be processed for a year. The state offers no guidance on these issues and said many times that they couldn’t discuss key changes in the program. Patient’s cards who expire in May will most likely be the first to get the 2-year renewal which the state says they will offer for the same rate as a 1-year renewal. John Reid, of Ann Arbor thinks the program is a joke. He has never received a card from the state within the 21 days that they are required to process them. “I think they are just delaying folks from getting their cards because they are unorganized and need more help. Where’s all this money going?” John has a good point. He also pointed out on his cashed check that the bank responsible for cashing the money is located in Indiana. “It’s a small bank. I looked it over,” he said in a telephone interview. John has his suspicions, and so do we. Until the state starts to get their act together they really shouldn’t be focused on targeting patients who they perceive as operating in so-called “gray” areas of the law. As John puts it, “They can’t even follow their own state law! What kind of example are they setting for the program? And then they target patients who are sick?”

Stay tuned as we provide you with updated information on the state registry program’s decisions and new implementations of the approved legislation.
