COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Robert Sprague (R-Findlay) was recently appointed to serve on the Ohio House of Representatives’ Healthier Ohio Working Group. This bipartisan committee is comprised predominantly from members of two House Finance and Appropriations subcommittees for the purpose of further discussing healthcare reform—specifically as it relates to Medicaid transformation.


"The costs of Medicaid continue to climb, and we need to reform this system that is fraught with waste, fraud and abuse,” Representative Sprague said. “But I also think we need to reconsider how to provide better access to mental health and addiction medical care and treatment."


The Healthier Ohio Working group has its first hearing today, where the members will hear from directors of the Governor’s Office of Health Transformation and Medicaid regarding the current conditions of the state’s Medicaid system.
