Ohio Department of Medicaid Submits Request to Implement New Program

The Ohio General Assembly had included a provision in the state budget enacted June 30, 2015, that required the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) to seek federal permission to mandate enrollment in a Health Savings Account for every non-disabled adult enrolled in Medicaid. On June 30, 2016, ODM submitted a Section 1115 waiver request to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Serves (CMS) to implement the Healthy Ohio Program. CMS will post the request online and invite public comment. No formal deadline has been established for CMS to respond to the state for the waiver decision.

A summary of the Healthy Ohio Program is available here. To view the waiver, click here.
