HPIO releases 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. See the report http://www.healthpolicyohio.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/MedicaidBasics_2017_Web.pdf
