Universal Health Coverage in Ohio? A plan and its prospects for success.

Posted Monday, August 6, 2007

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

The notion of universal health coverage has been around for awhile, and in the legislature, it keeps coming up... and usually dying. It's back in the state legislature, and maybe, now, its time has come. You're invited to join us for a look at this latest proposal for a Massachusetts-style insurance mandate, and we'll analyze its chances of political success in the Buckeye State. For a bit of comparison, too, we'll look at single-payer, government-sponsored health insurance proposals. Join us with your questions and your ideas for fixing health care in Ohio. Monday morning at nine.


Government/Politics, Health, Children's Health


Armond Budish, State Representative, 8th District
Dave Pavlick, northeast regional coordinator, Single Payer Action Network
Jason Sanford, Director of Communications, Health Policy Institute of Ohio
Tom Campanella, Director, Health Care MBA program, Baldwin-Wallace College
