Bill Ryan Quoted in Plain Dealer Medicaid Piece

On Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013, The Center for Health Affairs' President and CEO Bill Ryan was quoted in a Plain Dealer Medicaid Piece written by Sarah Tribble. 

In the piece Ryan comments on a new report expected to be released Tuesday that was done jointly by The Ohio State University, the Health Policy Institute of Ohio and others. The report will likely include lower estimates than those put forth on Medicaid expansion by Governor Kasich’s administration. 

In response to this, Ryan was quoted as saying, "Such a lowering of estimates could make it easier for Kasich to include the expansion in his budget proposal...If you are looking for something rosy to hang your hat on, that may give them a little bit of comfort that it’s not as big a bite to take as they thought."
