A new audit commissioned by Ohio’s Medicaid program shows that there’s a nearly 9 percent differential between what the state pays the two companies managing Medicaid pharmacy benefits and what those companies pay pharmacies for those drugs.

Governor John Kasich has created a new arm of state government that is intended to modernize Ohio’s Medicaid system and improve the quality of health-care services.  Medicaid reforms - including reimbursements cuts to hospitals, doctors and nursing homes - are a key factor in the governor’s budget proposal. Joining the show is the man appointed to lead the transformation: Ohio Governor’s Office of Health Transformation Director Greg Moody.
