2018-2019 State Budget, As Introduced:The Ohio Department of Medicaid

Explores Governor John Kasich's last biennial budget, focusing on the reforms his administration has implemented in Ohio's Medicaid program.Key Takeaways

  • In the last biennial budget of the Kasich administration, the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) continues many of the reforms sought over the course of the last six years, including the additional utilization of managed care, greater expansion and transparency of value-based payment methodologies through the State Innovation Model (SIM), and additional investments in home and community-based alternatives to facility-based care.
  • Overall, the ODM budget reflects a similar maneuver seen across state agencies in regard to shifting more resources from General Revenue Funds (GRF) to non-General Revenue Funds (non-GRF).
  • Because the MCO tax is being transitioned, local governments lose their ability to collect revenues from Medicaid health insurance companies via a sales tax.
