Roughly 23,000 Ohioans Enroll In Expanded Medicaid
A new state report shows that more than 23,000 low-income Ohioans have enrolled in Medicaid under an expansion of the taxpayer-funded program.
That’s about 6 percent of the roughly 366,000 residents who the state projected would be newly eligible for coverage by the end of June 2015.

The latest state figures do not include those who have applied to the program.
The expansion allowed those earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level to gain coverage. For a single adult, that’s about $16,000 a year.
Groups helping to sign people up for health insurance under the federal law say they expect Medicaid enrollment to climb.
