Nuns on the Bus Ohio is working to support Medicaid Expansion for Ohio!
The Affordable Care Act provided for the states to expand Medicaid to everyone with income under 138% of the Federal Poverty Level. Under the ACA, the federal government pays 100% of the cost of Medicaid for people newly eligible as a result of this expansion, from January 2014 until December 2016. Then the federal share of Medicaid decline each year, reaching 90% in 2020. This contrasts with the federal Medicaid share for currently eligible people, 63% in 2012, which will continue with minor year-to-year adjustments. The Supreme Court ruling last summer made the Medicaid expansion optional for the state. Ohio has not yet decided whether to accept federal money to expand Medicaid coverage under the expansion.
Medicaid covers healthcare for low-income seniors in nursing homes, the disabled, children and working families.
