Information about the Healthy Ohio Waiver

Have you heard about the possible changes coming to Ohio Medicaid?

The Ohio Department of Medicaid will be asking the Center for Medicaid/Medicare Services (CMS) to approve the Health Ohio Waiver – if approved, this would mean that anyone on Medicaid would need to pay $99 a year or 2% of their income into a Health Savings Account, would have co-pays for covered services and that yearly and life time maximum limits would be set.

If you or a loved one currently has Medicaid, please consider sending Director McCarthy at Ohio Medicaid a letter opposing the waiver. All letters should be sent to:

Demonstration Waiver
Bureau of Health Plan Policy
Ohio Department of Medicaid
50 W Town St., 5th Floor
Columbus OH 43218
