Continued Medicaid coverage for low-income Ohioans supported by Ohio Poverty Law Center.

Mike described how any efforts by the State to seek new waivers to impose premiums on Ohioans below the federal poverty level, or other requirements to gain or keep access, would jeopardize health care for hundreds of thousands of low- income Ohioans.
