Tom Watkins and Jim Haveman recently wrote an opinion piece in The Detroit News: “Asylums that ‘treated’ individuals with mental illness have been a horror show for far too many people throughout our history. It should not become a spooky entertainment venue.”
Upper Peninsula Health Plan was recently recognized again as one of the best Medicaid Health Plans in the country, and represents a true rural healthcare gem in the UP.
