Michigan Healthcare Freedom:

Bridging the barriers to better health policy

Defend your healthcare freedoms!


Counting down to the Michigan Primary Election








State health policy walls divide us. Patients, clinicians, and legislators barely talk, and few understand health policy’s true impact.

Michigan Healthcare Freedom has been bridging the barriers with education and advocacy since 2012. We grow the local and state conversation about real life problems and common sense solutions, enabling people to advocate knowledgeably.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

-US Declaration of Independence

You may feel you’re alone as your freedoms are under assault in the name of health.

Jeff Foxworthy, Michigan-style 🦊

Remember the Jeff Foxworthy jokes that started with, "You might be a redneck if ..."? Claiming the percentage of my heritage that qualifies as redneck, I loved Foxworthy's humor. But it wasn't funny this week when MDHHS did its own variation of the redneck joke with...

Bad Michigan Health Policy Costs All of Us

Michigan healthcare law has been growing for a hundred years, as special interests and regulators control more of the market for their own power and profit.

Consumers pay in higher bills, wasted time, and frustration.

Clinicians pay when mandates violate their conscience and steal patient time.

Parents pay when mandates interfere with their children’s health and local school policy.

Employees pay with losing the right to make independent health decisions.

We all know the big healthcare lobbies:  Hospital systems, Insurance, Higher Education, and Pharmaceutical and Medical manufacturers.

However, most are not aware that Michigan’s largest healthcare lobby is state government.

Empowered by our legislators and led by the governor, regulators burden healthcare with complex programs and rules. The largest state regulator is the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).

We believe healthcare begins with inherent rights and responsibilities.

We need freedom to make the best use of our property, including conscience, to protect our lives.

State regulations and special interest laws are barriers to our diverse healthcare needs. They reduce patient and clinician freedoms to exercise their individual rights. Barriers demand more of our time, effort, and money.

Barriers put lives at risk.

Informed citizens can bridge Michigan to more healthcare choices at lower prices and higher quality.

Our greatest risk in 2023 is not illness. It is state power gone amok.

Healthcare Costs Always Fall on Patients

The powerful Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) micromanages patient care through clinician regulation and reimbursement. Then it sends us the bill.

The $38.2 Billion MDHHS Budget comes out of our pockets and limits our potential.

Our Policy Barriers Create Medical Shortages

The more time health professions must devote to meeting state regulations, the less time they can give to patients. Heavy compliance requirements are one of the top reasons for job dissatisfaction, burnout and leaving the professions.

Michigan residents live in a primary care shortage area.
