Introduced by Rep. Tom McMillin (R) on May 26, 2011, to authorize Michigan’s entry into a multi-state health care compact. If approved by congress all federal Medicaid and Medicare funds would be block-granted to member states, and member states would be exempt from health-related federal regulations and mandates. Member states would have primary responsibility for regulation of all nonmilitary health care goods and services in their state, plus health-related social welfare programs.
Referred to the House Health Policy Committee on May 26, 2011.

Making different types of health care programs based on different areas of the Unites States goes to a better understanding of health care importance.
2) Re: 2011 House Bill 4693 (Join multi-state Health Care Compact ) by AxelThomas on May 7, 2012 It seems fair to me that every state should be granted freedom of choosing how it will use the health care funds. If one state decides that eating disorder treatments should be covered, a lot of people would have to benefit. Each state could adopt different health programs based on the health reality of it's inhabitants. This would be a lot more beneficial than general, country wide ones.
