Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
State Website Alerts Ohioans To Medicaid Expansion
The state has started notifying people on its new benefits website that more low-income Ohioans will be eligible for health coverage under an expansion of the Medicaid program.
The notification tells people to check back about when they can apply. It also directs people to more information about the eligibility changes.
Ohio recently got approval from Washington to extend Medicaid eligibility to thousands more people.
On Monday, the quietly powerful state Controlling Board granted a request from Gov. John Kasich’s administration to spend federal dollars on the expansion. Coverage begins Jan. 1.
Opponents of Medicaid expansion have filed a lawsuit over approval of the funds.
The state’s Medicaid department says its benefits website will begin accepting Medicaid applications for newly eligible adults in the coming months.
