A comprehensive look at proposals in the Ohio Departments of Developmental Disabilities and Health budgets, as introduced in Governor Kasich’s budget.
- In early 2017, the State of Ohio released its State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP), which is an actionable plan to improve health and control health care spending.
- ODH and the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) seek to leverage $5 million per year in federal Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) funding for lead abatement in properties where children reside.
- The introduced budget continues many initiatives introduced in previous budgets with further expansion of community living options through waivers and additional programs for the developmentally disabled.
