HPIO releases Ohio Medicaid Basics 2017
The Health Policy Institute of Ohio has released Ohio Medicaid Basics 2017.
The Medicaid program pays for healthcare services for more than 3 million Ohioans and is an important driver of payment reform and quality measurement initiatives with the healthcare system.
Released to coincide with the state biennial budget, Ohio Medicaid Basics is a foundational summary of the state-federal program. The 2017 edition provides an overview of Ohio Medicaid eligibility, enrollment and financing. The brief also reviews key Medicaid-related policy changes and includes an update on Medicaid expansion enrollment trends and spending.
The Health Policy Institute of Ohio has created Medicaid Basics every two years since 2005.
