Policy Snapshot Addresses Impact of Election on Health Policy Landscape in Ohio



January 2017 Policy SnapshotOne thing is certain following the Nov. 8 elections, the health policy landscape in Ohio is about to shift. How drastic that shift will ultimately be is unknown with many in health policy circles using the term “uncertain” to describe the anticipated impact.

Legislative and executive action at the federal level will undoubtedly impact the health policy landscape in Ohio and other states and municipalities across the country. Meanwhile, while people are keenly focused on what is happening in Washington, D.C., ballot measures passed in states and cities across the U.S. also signal shifts in Americans’ views on end-of-life care and alternative methods for treating debilitating illnesses and health conditions.

The Center’s January Policy Snapshot, Health Policy and the Election: The People Have Spoken. Now What?, delves into the elections’ likely impact on the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), pharmaceuticals, physician-assisted suicide and marijuana legalization.
