The GME Question: Snyder, Providers At Odds On Value

In explaining why Governor Rick Snyder cut the Graduate Medical Education program and proposed a plan to end state taxpayer-funded support for it, he and his staff have said that Michigan's support for GME relative to other states is high and that the best way to fund hospitals is through payment for patient care.

It has been clear for years that Mr. Snyder was less than wowed by the GME program. He has proposed reductions in General Fund support in all four of his budget recommendations to a program that is a major priority for the state's hospitals.
