Ohio Lawmakers OK Bill Targeting Medicaid Growth
The Ohio Legislature has passed a bill to create a new oversight committee for Medicaid and take steps to limit the cost growth of the federal-state health program for the poor and disabled.
The House passed the bill on a 52-35 vote, and the Senate also gave its OK Wednesday. A spokesman for Gov. John Kasich says he intends to sign it.
The bill aims to curb future cost increases in Medicaid. The growth targets in the proposal are tied to the lesser of the three-year average medical inflation rate for the Midwest or the projected inflation rate determined by the oversight panel. Lawmakers on the panel would work with an actuary to analyze Medicaid’s costs.
The joint legislative panel also could investigate the state agencies that administer Medicaid.
