What better way to celebrate the holidays than by rejoicing over expanded health coverage to Ohioans in need!
Thanks to the Ohio Supreme Court upholding the Controlling Board’s decision to fund the Medicaid Expansion, on January 1st, 2014, over 275,000 more Ohioans will be eligible for health coverage for the first time!
We were blown away by the tremendous statewide support for health coverage for low income Ohioans. We want to thank our partners and supporters who have worked tirelessly to get this passed. By working together, our dedication and perseverance has paid off.
As they say, the work of a health care advocate is never done. Now’s the time to get this information out and Ohioans enrolled in health coverage.
Please encourage Ohioans to visit www.benefits.ohio.gov to see if they are now eligible for Medicaid.
If they don’t qualify for Medicaid, remind them to check out www.healthcare.gov to see how much of a discount they will receive toward their monthly and out-of-pocket health insurance costs if they enroll in a plan in the Marketplace. Remember the deadline to enroll in coverage to start January 1 is December 23, 2013.

Cathy Levine, Executive Director, UHCAN Ohio
