On Sept. 9, Colbeck and Sen. Mike Nofs, R-Battle Creek, introduced Senate Bill 1033, which clarifies the Michigan Insurance Code by clearly stating that, in Michigan, this arrangement is not health insurance and these practices are exempt from insurance regulations.
The legislation has cleared two committee votes and now awaits a third reading in the state Senate.In addition, the Michigan Senate Health Policy Committee passed Senate Concurrent Resolution 23, which goes to the floor of the state Senate for a vote. This resolution asks the federal government to implement the four federal reform recommendations on Direct Primary Care cited in the Heritage Backgrounder.
