House Bill 276 – Sub. HB 276 passed out of the Health and Aging Committee a few weeks with the expectation it would receive a floor vote prior to the legislature breaking for summer recess. The OSCA has spoken with the speaker’s office several times and they have assured us the bill will go to floor before break which starts at the end of May.
Lt. Governor’s Office – The OSCA met with the Lt. Governor’s Deputy Chief of Staff a few weeks ago to start talks on making the Ohio Administrative Code consistent with how chiropractic physicians are viewed within BWC. Our specific focus will be on Medicaid and the Department of Education. While these talks are preliminary, we feel confident there will be future meetings with the LG’s office and other state-wide agencies to address these issues.
