Michigan Workers Lose Health-Insurance Cover, Detroit News Says

About a million people in Michigan lost health-insurance cover linked to their jobs in the first few years of the millennium, Detroit News reported, citing a report by the Economic Policy Institute, a research group in Washington D.C.

Between 2000-01 and 2008-09, the number who had health cover provided by employers fell to 5.7 million, from 6.6 million, the newspaper said.

The main reason was a sharp fall in the number of manufacturing jobs in Michigan, the Detroit News said, citing Elise Gould, who heads health policy research at the institute.
