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 new regulations issued by the Board of Pharmacy play a crucial role in achieving the goals of the pill mill legislation,” said Burke. “Now whenever individuals are left with excess medication, or that of a passed loved one, there will be an easy, convenient, and safe process to go about disposing of those drugs. Taking the responsibility to dispose of these drugs is important to protect the health and safety of Ohio's families and communities.”
State Senators Dave Burke and Frank LaRose introduced legislation on Monday that would ensure Ohio’s commitment to veterans by assisting them in gaining access to healthcare benefits which they have earned.
