Ohio Health Insurance Transformation

Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, who also serves as the Director of the Department of Insurance, has disbanded the Ohio Health insurance Care Coverage and Quality Council, saying the Department needs to focus on implementing federal health care reform. She noted, however, that two council subgroups, the Payment Reform Task Force and Enhanced Primary Care Medical Home Task Force, will serve as advisory bodies for the Governor’s Office of Health Transformation. In addition, Governor Kasich unveiled his biennial budget proposal, which includes a new Public Employees Health Care Program to develop a health insurance pooling program for local governments, higher education institutions and school districts that choose to enroll their employees.
