State of Ohio Health Care Overview

Health care reform measures have been implemented in Ohio to directly decrease the number of uninsured in the state while increasing the number of small businesses that provide employee health insurance. The reforms include a rate-cap on individual coverage for those with pre-existing health conditions, mandating small employers permit business workers to purchase health coverage with pre-tax dollars, and extending the state’s mini-COBRA program so small business employees can maintain health benefits for themselves and their family in the event they become unemployed.

To monitor the progress of the state’s efforts to decrease the number of uninsured Ohioans and to obtain health insurance information, please call the Ohio Department of Insurance’s consumer hotline at 1-800-686-1526.
