Ohio is closer to replacing an outdated system that's known for rejecting eligible people from the Medicaid program.
Officials said Wednesday the state will contract with Accenture LLC for a new system that will help determine eligibility for programs across Ohio's health and human services agencies.
The announcement comes as the governor wants to expand the federal-state Medicaid program to cover more low-income people.
Gov. John Kasich's proposed budget includes $230 million for the eligibility system upgrade, though the federal government is expected to reimburse the state for most of the cost.
