Webinar: Update on Medicaid and Health Care Access in Ohio Read more news...

Experts discussed the importance of continued Medicaid funding and shared ways to take action and get involved.

As Advocates for Ohio’s Future and our coalition partners look towards the next state budget, we need your support to improve the health of families and communities in Ohio by maintaining Medicaid.

If no further action is taken by the Governor and the Ohio General Assembly, funding for the Medicaid expansion population will sunset June 30, 2015 and thousands of Ohioans will lose health care coverage.

The webinar featured:

  • Col Owens, Co-Chair, Advocates for Ohio’s Future and Senior Attorney, Legal Aid of Southwest Ohio
  • Julie DiRossi-King, COO, Ohio Association of Community Health Centers
