A Move Towards Home Health Care Governor Kasich plans to save the state millions of dollars by cutting down on reimbursements for nursing homes, where care is more expensive than the national average. It will ease budget pressure and, he says, keep mom and dad at home. How would that work? On the next sound of ideas, we'll explore alternatives to nursing home care, including expansion of the state's passport program for Medicaid-eligible elderly people. Join us Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.
