“It is important to me that Marion is included in this program, because not only do we have great resources in our K-12 system, but we also have higher education and technical education opportunities available as well,” said Burke. “This program will help our students find a pathway to a brighter future in my hometown.”
“By revising the consult agreement statute we will improve patient care by reducing unnecessary administrative paperwork, and most importantly, improving disease management to help individuals with chronic conditions live long and prosperous lives,” Burke said.
This is a small glimpse into the continued innovation in the health care arena in the State of Ohio, not only in this budget and in the Medicaid system, but in the health care arena as a whole. Ohio is doing great things and we must continue to support these programs. However, we must accept that not all of our outcomes are positive. We must be innovative and aggressive to improve outcomes. This budget offers a strong foundation for the future and will continue to grow a healthier Ohio.
“The Senate’s budget proposal makes state government more accountable and fiscally responsible by reducing proposed spending by $1.7 billion and increasing services to those who are most in need to help lift folks up and out of poverty and toward a sustainable career,” said Senator Burke.
