NAMI report: what's at stake without Medicaid expansion
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) this week released Medicaid Expansion and Mental Health, a new report explaining what's at stake for individuals with mental illness as state legislatures debate whether to extend Medicaid coverage to low-income Americans.
Ohio is among a handful of states still undecided about Medicaid expansion.
The document provides an overview of essential benefits covered under the Medicaid program and highlights the impact expansion would have in terms of financing services that would otherwise be out of reach for low income individuals affected by mental illness.
