Dayton, Ohio (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
CareSource, a nonprofit, Ohio-based health plan commends the Kasich administration and legislators on the State Controlling Board for doing the right thing. Today’s decision is a great moment for more than 275,000 Ohioans who will get access to health care January 1.
All Ohioans benefit from receiving health care coverage through Medicaid Expansion. Providing access to health care for citizens who need it most, results in better health care outcomes, saves lives and taxpayer dollars. The investment made to help individuals and families take responsibility for primary and preventative care reduces the cost of uncompensated care. When Ohioans invest in people the benefits return to communities through robust economic development.
