RELEASE: Rep. Tim Ryan on Federal Oversight of Ohio's Affordable Care Act Exchange

Nov 14, 2012 Issues: Health Care


Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) issued the following statement in response to reports that Ohio’s participation in the Affordable Care Act’s exchanges will be managed by the federal government:

“I look forward to working with Department of Health and Human Services to make sure that Ohio’s residents have an exchange that meets their health care needs. Exchanges are an opportunity to make health care accessible, affordable, and effective for many Ohioans who would otherwise not have insurance, and I am optimistic about what we can accomplish with the Ohio exchange operating under federal oversight. I will do everything I can to make it successful in broadening access to coverage, reducing costs and improving patient outcomes.”
