Ohio spends a lot on Medicaid. But is his overall health up to par?

Marin Ackerman, 10, of Upper Arlington, receives a bandage after receiving a dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine during a clinic for children ages 5 to 11 in 2021 at Nationwide Children's Hospital.  Children represent 1.33 million Ohioans who have Medicaid.

With the end of pandemic-era policies and benefits, Ohio officials estimate that as many as 280,000 of Ohio’s 3.55 million enrolled residents could lose Medicaid.

About 1 million Americans have already lost coverage from the government-paid health insurance program for children, low-income adults, seniors, and people with disabilities since federally mandated automatic re-enrollment into the program ended March 31, including 24,000 Ohioans who have lost the benefit since late May, according to the Ohio Department of Medicaid.

Now, people have to manually re-enroll to get coverage.

Meanwhile, Ohio is one of the states that spends the most on insuring its citizens, but falls short in terms of access and quality of health care.
