Protect Health Care for Ohio and the Nation
Contact Senator Portman
Tell him he should not vote until there are full hearings on the bill. He needs to thoughtfully consider all the information on a bill that will impact so many in Ohio.
Tell him Medicaid caps (cuts to Medicaid funding) are not acceptable and will cut coverage and benefits. It will hurt children, seniors, families, the working poor and those dealing with addiction.
Tell him that $45 Billion in an opioid grant will not make up for the damage done in cutting Medicaid and expansion. $4.5 billion dollars a year for opioid treatment is not going to make up for the projected $18 billion spent on behavioral health in the Medicaid program. Millions will lose access to addiction and mental health treatment and it ignores the need for prevention.

Protect Medicaid in Ohio
The Ohio Legislature passed the budget bill to prohibit any new enrollees into Medicaid expansion. It included hurtful work requirements and requirement to ask for the failed Healthy Ohio waiver again. It would eliminate health care for hundreds of thousands of low-income workers and hurt communities struggling with addiction. We need to support a Governor’s veto.
Call Gov Kasich with your support (614) 466-3555. Or send him a note at http://www.governor.ohio.gov/Contact/ContacttheGovernor.aspx
Ask that he veto:
1. the freeze on the expansion group enrollment
2. the ill written work requirements and
3. the requirement that Ohio apply for the previously rejected Healthy Ohio waiver
Call your state representative and your member of the Senate and tell them to keep Medicaid expansion in Ohio. Tell them not to add work requirements. Find your member of the House. Find your member of the Senate.
