Ohio Medicaid growth within legislative targets
The Governor's Office of Health Transformation recently updated budget documents to reflect the Ohio General Assembly's Joint Medicaid Oversight Committee (JMOC) official calculation of Medicaid per member spending. For the 2018-2019 budget, JMOC recommends limiting Medicaid per member spending growth to 3.3 percent each year. JMOC estimates the Governor's budget as introduced will limit Medicaid per member spending growth to 1.9 percent in 2018 and 1.5 percent in 2019 (1.7 percent on average over the biennium) well within the legislature's 3.3 percent target.
