Ohio Medicaid prepares for reform; optional services taken off table

September 2011
State Health Watch;Sep2011, Vol. 18 Issue 9, p1
The article describes the challenges facing Ohio Medicaid as the state deals with a high unemployment rate and slow economic growth. It relates how Ohio's Medicaid program maintained its optional health care services in 2010 and 2011 since the extension of enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentages (FMAP) in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2010-2011 budget endowed it with an additional fund. Ohio Medicaid is seeking to obtain 90/10 funding in order to revamp its 30-year-old eligibility system.
