  • New! Renewal MEDTAPP Questions

    Medicaid Technical Assistance and Policy Program (MEDTAPP) Data Collection

    Starting in late September, you will notice when you renew or apply for a license that some questions have been added in eLicense to facilitate the work of the Medicaid Technical Assistance and Policy Program (details on MEDTAPP and link to more information are below). Answers to the questions will help researchers and other stakeholders explore the size and capacity of Ohio's healthcare workforce, as well as to help identify gaps and forecast future needs. The information you provide will be helpful in setting healthcare policy in the State of Ohio, developing programs, and applying for funding to train Ohio's future healthcare workers.

    More About MEDTAPP
