News from the Ohio Office of Health Transformation

The Ohio Departments of Medicaid and Health joined the Ohio Colleges of Medicine Government Resource Center to announce the results of the 2015 Ohio Medicaid Assessment Survey. The biannual survey's findings illustrate dramatic recent improvements in Ohio's healthcare landscape: Half of Ohio's adult Medicaid enrollees or their spouses currently work, and another 30% are individuals living with disabilities; Ohio's uninsured rate has been cut in half since 2012; the rate of employer-sponsored insurance has remained constant since 2010; and, compared to three years ago, fewer survey respondents cited issues in accessing healthcare services.

The Ohio Department of Medicaid also released a new Medicaid Managed Care Consumer Report Card that rates Ohio's five contracted health plans on topics such as “getting care” and “keeping kids healthy” and “doctors’ communication and service.” The goal is to provide greater transparency around Medicaid care and services, encourage competition among the five health plans, and help Medicaid beneficiaries learn more about the managed care plans available to them.
