Ohio Medicaid wants to hear from YOU at their listening session on October 7th in Lisbon!

In January, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine called on the Ohio Department of Medicaid to ensure that Ohioans get the best value in quality health care. He called for feedback from individuals receiving Medicaid services, providers and advocates, and emphasized that “their voices are vital to a just and fair managed care program.”

In response, Ohio Medicaid is conducting listening sessions with individuals throughout the state to better understand their lived experiences with health care. You can participate by attending Ohio Medicaid’s listening session at the Community Action Agency of Columbiana County on October 7 at 5 to 7 pm. Light refreshments will be provided. Childcare and transportation may be available.

Ohio Medicaid Director Maureen M. Corcoran commented that “we encourage anyone whose life is touched by Medicaid and the health coverage it provides to share their input.” All individuals receiving services through Medicaid are encouraged to attend. The feedback collected will be shared with Ohio Medicaid staff who are focused on identifying possible changes to the current program that could address the needs and concerns expressed by individuals.

If you can attend RSVP today online or call 330-424-7221. If you are unable to make it to the listening session, you can provide your input to Ohio Medicaid by emailing MCProcurement@medicaid.ohio.gov or visiting medicaid.ohio.gov/procurement. Each person’s perspective provides a unique insight and contributes to Ohio Medicaid’s new approach to health care.
