On January 1st, a new state law kicked in that forces heath insurance companies to make some changes to make coverage more affordable to Ohioans who have expensive illnesses like cancer and heart disease. The new law will cap the amount Ohioans with preexisting conditions can be charged for private insurance. the head of the Ohio Association of Health Plans, the lobby group that represents 19 major health care insurers in Ohio, says companies are ready to comply with the change. In an interview with Statehouse correspondent Jo Ingles, Kelly McGivern explains why this change could mean many Ohioans will end up paying more for health care coverage.
