Indiana-based artist Tasha Lewis transforms the Conservatory’s gallery with thousands of magnetic cyanotype butterflies printed on cotton fabric. Her blue butterflies hover in mid-air and seem to swarm the space, blurring the connection between the natural and artificial worlds.
Ohio Medicaid Recipients See Revamped Program
Many Ohioans on Medicaid will see a revamped program under new contracts with health plans taking effect this month.
The Medicaid managed care program provides health care services for more than 1.6 million poor and disabled people in Ohio.
The state recently re-bid its contracts serving the Medicaid population. Beneficiaries now can choose from five plans. They are the Buckeye Community Health Plan, CareSource, Molina Healthcare, Paramount Advantage and United Healthcare.
Under the new contracts, the plans are required to maintain and operate a member service call center in Ohio. The state’s Medicaid department says it expects the requirement would lead to almost 1,000 new jobs.
The plans also have to develop financial incentives for hospitals, doctors and other providers that are tied to improving quality and patients’ health.
