Genesee County voters renew the Health Care Services Millage
Renewal will allow Genesee Health Plan to continue providing health care coverage for thousands of Genesee County residents FLINT – The...
Founded in 2001, The Genesee Health Plan (GHP) covers preventive health care services including doctor visits, outpatient mental health services, prescription drugs, dental care, labs, x-rays, mammograms and cancer screenings. GHP helps hard-working Genesee County residents who work two or three jobs but don’t receive health insurance from their employer or may have recently lost a job. GHP also provides dental care for seniors and veterans.
GHP is funded by a countywide “Health Care Services Millage” that provides funding for health care services. The millage was first approved in 2006 and renewed in 2012. Every penny raised from the millage is spent on direct health care services for patients. For more information about GHP’s accountability and transparency click here. Renewing this millage means keeping our tax rates the same as they are today; the proposed rate of .998 mills will cost the owner of a home valued at $100,000 about $50 per year.
On Tuesday, November 6, Genesee County voters will have the opportunity to renew the “Health Care Services Millage.” Renewing the millage means that Genesee Health Plan, along with local organizations, partners and providers, can continue to provide these life-saving and much needed services to the residents of Genesee County.
