Senator Dave Burke (R-Marysville) took the Medicaid Finance subcommittee on the road today to learn more about healthcare reform at Cleveland MetroHealth System.

The goal was to learn what MetroHealth’s healthcare program was doing to lower costs while providing more coverage.

MetroHealth focuses mainly on primary care for uninsured people, which helps reduce costs, according to healthcare professionals.

The subcommittee has been collecting information that will best help to reform Medicaid into a program that is patient-centered that will streamline costs and improve care, while avoiding costly emergency room visits.

Senator Burke and the Medicaid subcommittee will continue their information-gathering next Tuesday at CareSource in Dayton.
