KALAMAZOO, MI --Megan Dooley wants health insurance, but she wasn't looking forward to signing up for Obamacare. A 28-year-old musician who also works at The Union restaurant, Dooley earns less than $16,000 and can't afford another bill. But last week, Dooley found out that she's very likely eligible for Healthy Michigan, the state's Medicaid expansion program, which starts enrollment on Tuesday, April 1.
