The Ohio Department of Medicaid released a proposal that would impose barriers on people who depend on Medicaid; over 36,000 people could lose their health care coverage. However, these barriers are illegal because they are in direct opposition to the purpose of Medicaid. Medicaid’s stated purpose is to enable each state, as far as practicable, “to furnish…medical assistance” to individuals “whose income and resources are insufficient to meet the costs of necessary medical services”.
