OH Issue 3 won’t have a big impact on healthcare in the short term, experts say

The Plain Dealer, November 11, 2011

Ohioans voted 2-to-1 Tuesday to preserve their "freedom to choose their health care and health care coverage," as Issue 3 was worded on the ballot. But what does that mean, and what impact will this new amendment have on people's lives now that it's enshrined in the Ohio Constitution? "In the short term, not a lot," said Matt Albers, a health care lawyer with the Cleveland office of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease who has studied the amendment but did not take a position during the debate on the issue. Supporters of Issue 3 cheered it as a repudiation of President Barack Obama's health care policy.
