Why Is This Important?

Access to and utilization of quality health care greatly affects a person’s health. Increasing access to both routine medical care and medical insurance are vital steps in improving the health of all Americans. Regular and reliable access to health services can prevent disease and disability, detect and treat illnesses or other health conditions, and increase life expectancy.

Story Behind the Curve

Ohio's Medicaid expansion has cut in half the number of uninsured Ohioans since 2014 when it went into effect.  Combined with reduced unemployment rates, the number of unisured, working age adults has fallen in recent years.
