Medicaid is the largest health payer in Ohio, covering three million Ohioans through a network of more than 90,000 health care providers. Prior to the Kasich Administration, Medicaid policy, spending and administration were split across multiple government jurisdictions. In 2013, Governor Kasich created a stand-alone, cabinet-level Medicaid department to remove barriers that impede innovation and make Ohio's program more efficient, effective, and responsive to the needs of beneficiaries, stakeholders and Ohio taxpayers.
