Thank you, your calls and emails made the difference and Senate Bill 287 was unanimously approved by the Ohio House of Representatives last Thursday.


SB 287, which unbundles wheel chairs from the Medicaid per-diem in skilled nursing facilities and drastically improving access to mobility devices for residents with MS, now moves to the Ohio Senate for concurrence. We need the Governor and the Senate Leadership to know that this legislation matters to you!

Please call Governor Kasich and the Senate leadership today and tell them SB 287 must pass NOW. They cannot delay in fixing the mistakes of 3.5 years ago any longer. People with disabilities are going without necessary mobility devices essential for their quality of life and cannot wait any longer.


Governor John Kasich (614) 466-3555 
President Tom Niehaus (614) 466-8082
President Pro Tempore Keith Faber (614) 466-7584
Majority Whip Shannon Jones (614) 466-9737
Majority Floor Leader Tom Patton (614) 466-8056
Finance Chairman Chris Widener (614) 466-3780
