JMOC Report To Analyze ODH Medical Handicap Program Eligibility

When the Joint Medicaid Oversight Committee meets in December to debut its report on payer programs, a portion will be dedicated to the chair's interest in revising eligibility requirements for children with medical handicap services.

Rep. Barbara Sears (R-Maumee) said she'd like to clarify eligibility and put guardrails in place that ensure services paid for by the Department of Health through its Children with Medical Handicaps Program are provided only to individuals facing serious health care hurdles.
