Explores the Ohio Department of Medicaid and the Ohio Department of Health in the enacted state budget.

Key Takeaways

  • The Medicaid expansion was maintained, but the General Assembly is requiring waivers which increase the cost-sharing requirements for enrollees.
  • Many of the policies sought by the administration were eliminated, potentially causing a gap in financing that the administration may have to resolve through provider cuts.
  • The Managed Care Tax has been reconfigured and remains a topic of deliberation between the legislative and executive branches of government.
