We evaluate the extent to which the Ohio Medicaid Program serves as a safety net to terminally ill cancer patients, and the
costs associated with providing care to this patient population. Over a 10-year period, Ohio Medicaid served nearly 45,000
beneficiaries dying of cancer, and spent more than $1 billion in medical care expenditures in their last year of life.
