Ohio Gov.John Kasich and Cleveland Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove appeared at the City Club Friday, to talk about health-care reform. Both were focused on the importance of lowering health costs.
Kasich said the state was able to lower yearly growth in Medicaid costs from 9 percent to 3 percent. He said the state could continue cutting costs if it could eliminate coverage of some of the more expensive prescription drugs.
“And the minute we can drop it is the minute we got negotiating power. And they’re going to bring their price down," Kasich said.
