Today, the Healthy Ohioans Work coalition, a group working to expand Medicaid coverage for nearly 300,000 Ohioans announced the filing of an initiated statute to the Ohio Attorney General to begin the initiative petition process.
In response, Cuyahoga County Executive and gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald released the following statement:
“I fully support this crucial effort to expand Medicaid coverage for nearly 300,000 Ohioans who desperately need it, and I was proud to sign the petition. I’m also going to encourage everyone I talk to all across the state to sign it, and to help collect signatures.
“I’m excited about this effort and looking forward to doing more to ensure that these dollars are returned to Ohio, where they belong, to help working Ohioans get the health care they need.”
