OHA's experienced advocates represent hospitals' views on dozens of health care bills each year with state lawmakers, Ohio's Congressional delegates, state and federal regulatory agencies and other trade associations.
We also develop and implement legislative strategies and spearhead grassroots advocacy efforts to help hospitals create a powerful voice in the legislative and public policy arena.
Additionally, OHA works to equip state lawmakers with the tools and resources they need to make informed decisions on health care matters affecting their constituents.

State Budget & Mid-Biennium Review
In the coming weeks, the executive and legislative branches will begin deliberating the 2018-2019 state operating budget. During these negotiations, lawmakers will evaluate important health care policy and decide how best to allocate state resources.
Constitutionally, Ohio’s budget must be balanced, passed by both chambers and sent to the governor’s desk prior to July 1 – the beginning of the next fiscal year.
