The 30-day window for public comment on the state’s “Healthy Ohio” Medicaid waiver opens Friday, April 15. If approved, the waiver would affect a million low-income Ohioans by requiring that they establish Health Savings Accounts and pay annually to maintain their Medicaid coverage.
Before submitting the waiver application to the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare (CMS) the state must collect public input and include it with the waiver, which could result in the waiver being denied or amended. In addition to written comments, the state will host two public hearings in different locations. Attending a public hearing is a great opportunity for you to provide feedback on the waiver to the state and CMS.
If the proposed changes to Ohio’s Medicaid system will impact you or someone you know, plan to attend the second public hearing.
We need you to show up and speak out! If you plan to attend click here and let us know.
