• Description

This report is part of a series of 21 state and regional studies examining the rollout of the ACA. The national network -- with 36 states and 61 researchers -- is led by the Rockefeller Institute of Government, the public policy research arm of the State University of New York, the Brookings Institution, and the Fels Institute of Government at the University of Pennsylvania. Over the past year, state agency leadership and some members of the legislature have taken an interest in exploring various healthcare reforms in Ohio that address rising healthcare costs and identifying ways to improve healthcare quality, efficiency, and improve overall health outcomes for Ohioans. For example, the legislature included language around healthcare price transparency in the most recent state budget and formed a study committee for the summer of 2015 with the purpose of examining healthcare efficiencies that lead to better health outcomes at a lower cost to Ohioans.
