The article reports on the new claims adjudication system of Ohio Medicaid which is set to go live in December 2010. According to Tracy Plouck, the Medicaid director in Ohio, that system will result in significant savings for the program. Starting December, they will have less of a paper-based system and a consumer tracking system that will be used for inquiries. It says that despite the fact that the system will go live in 2010, the major impact will not happen until several years later.
