Rep. Antonio Brings Expertise To Joint Medicaid Oversight Committee
Lawmaker appointed as Ranking Member to state Medicaid panel

State Rep. Nickie J. Antonio (D-Lakewood) was recently appointed as Ranking Minority Member to the newly-formed Joint Medicaid Oversight Committee (JMOC). The nine-member bicameral, bipartisan panel is charged with providing oversight to Ohio’s Medicaid program.

“It is an honor to be selected for work on such an important public health policy initiative,” said Rep. Antonio. “Medicaid oversight is important as we strive to maintain a strong continuum of care and safety net for Ohio families.”

JMOC will provide oversight and recommendations for the Medicaid program, consulting actuarial information each state budget cycle to determine the functional status of the program. Meetings are set to begin later this month.
