Mayor Jackson praises Medicaid expansion in Ohio

I commend Governor Kasich for advocating for the expansion of Medicaid and I applaud the vote by the Controlling Board. This expansion will help fill a serious gap in our health care delivery system by removing the financial barrier to preventive and emergency medical care that hundreds of thousands of Ohioans have faced. Hospitals will better be able to manage their costs as the number of uninsured patients decreases and there is great potential for economic growth in Cleveland’s outstanding health care industry. Most importantly, the people who are eligible for Medicaid through this expansion can now take charge of their health and improve their quality of life.
