Ohio Senate Not Planning to put Medicaid Expansion Back in the Budget

From Ohio Liberty Coalition

In a press conference earlier today, Senate President Faber announced that Medicaid expansion as proposed by Governor Kasich would not be included in the Senate version of the biennial budget.

While we are encouraged by this development, Senator Faber did leave open the possibility for expansion to occur by other means, either through a stand alone bill being pursued in the Ohio House of Representatives or through a Medicaid reform work group led by Senator Burke and operating in conjunction with the Ohio House and the Governor.  Senator Faber characterized the work group’s mission as developing “a reform that allows us to provide more services to more individuals for less money.”

The Ohio Liberty Coalition will remain engaged in this battle to ensure that any Medicaid reforms or expansion proposals are based on free market principles and do not rely on the capricious promise of more federal dollars.
