  • Extending health care coverage supports people, families and our communities. Nearly 275,000 Ohioans will gain access to health care coverage.
  • Expanding Medicaid supports our state and our economy. Medicaid expansion will bring in $13 billion from the federal government into Ohio and it will help create 30,000 jobs over the next 10 years.
  • Find your county fact sheet here to show how many people in your county could gain access to health care coverage by 2015 if Ohio expands the Medicaid program.

Sample conversation:

Are you a registered voter in this county?

Do you support strengthening families and our community?

Great! I’m a volunteer with Healthy Ohioans Work (or your local organization). I’m working to get the Medicaid expansion law on the ballot in 2014.

Are you familiar with Medicaid expansion?

It’s great for families and our community. It will help expand health care access to nearly 275,000 people across the state in two years. It will also support our state and our economy. Medicaid expansion will bring in $13 billion from the federal government into Ohio and it will help create 30,000 jobs over the next 10 years.

In our county, (number from county fact sheet) people are expected to gain access to health care coverage by 2015 if Ohio expands the Medicaid program.

Will you sign in support?

Thanks!
