Analyzes the House version of the state budget's effect on Medicaid.Key Takeaways

  • The House has taken formal steps to push against the administration’s efforts to privatize the program through managed care and move in the direction of value-based reimbursement.
  • In an effort to increase the influence of the General Assembly on the general management of Medicaid, the House proposed policies, which require statutory authority for covered groups, JMOC approval for provider rate changes, and Controlling Board control for limited funding associated with the program.
  • In recent months, Ohio nursing facilities have come under greater public scrutiny as reports citing nationally-indicated lower quality have come out. The House provided the industry a $307 million increase and the state’s authority around overpayment collection reduced from five years to three.
