A unique entity, the Economic Alliance for Michigan (EAM) is comprised of businesses and labor organizations working together and serving as a trusted source for employers and health benefit professionals who are searching for solutions to better manage the costs of benefits and provide access of quality care to their covered populations.
Dedicated to improving the cost, quality and consumer experience in healthcare delivery in the State of Michigan and nationally through other influential employer-based coalitions, EAM represents more than 900,000 covered lives in the state and can provide your organization with access to education programs and employer-directed activities focusing on industry trends and best practices from innovative employers and industry experts.
Since 1982, the EAM has faithfully served Michigan as a nonprofit 501c3. We are an experienced organization with strengths in advocating among Michigan’s legislature, and our continued efforts to bring the topic of rising health care costs and its effect on the economy to the forefront of politician’s agendas and to the top-of-mind of Michigan’s residents.
In 2014, the EAM became The Leapfrog Group’s Regional Roll-out Coordinator for the State of Michigan. Along with The Leapfrog Group, we educate the public and employers how they can save on health care costs and how to choose the best hospital care.
The EAM’s goal is continued economic growth in Michigan with policies attracting employees and employers to work and do business in the State of Michigan.
WHAT WE DO
The EAM is the leader in state government relations when it comes to bringing both political parties together to maintain and improve Michigan’s jobs and working environment. We focus on the issues that matter most to our members and legislation favorable to job growth by concentrating on ways to constrain costs for employers – leading to a stronger economy.
We rally behind policy and issues that pertain to both our business and labor members. Issues that can affect Michigan’s economy such as:
- Economic development
- Healthcare costs
- Workers’ compensation
- Unemployment insurance
The EAM also conducts research concerning different factors surrounding the economy, particularly in the health care arena. We educate the public about how patients have choices when it comes to health care facilities, and by choosing hospitals who provide excellent safety and quality of care leads to cost-savings for the patient, employer and the state.
Recently, the EAM’s identity was stolen and bank account compromised. Several fraudulent, bogus checks have and are still being mailed to people across the country. Please do not attempt to deposit or cash these checks, they will not be valid. The EAM did not print or send these checks. We continue to monitor the situation.
