Ohio Medicaid: What The Center Is Doing
The Medicaid program provides health insurance to some of society’s most vulnerable members and remains an important part of the healthcare safety net. As Medicaid continues to absorb greater shares of state and federal budgets, conversations about how to finance the program – including the potential for cuts in coverage or reimbursement – persist in policy circles. Given Ohio Medicaid’s impact on the health of the population and hospitals’ bottom lines, The Center for Health Affairs works diligently to stay abreast of the latest developments in Ohio Medicaid reimbursement and coverage policy. As the leading advocate for Northeast Ohio hospitals, The Center helps to coordinate efforts to ensure appropriate reimbursement.
