Ohio Statehouse

The Ohio House of Representatives is one of two chambers that make up Ohio's legislative branch. All members of the Ohio House must be U.S. citizens, 18-years or older, and reside in the districts from which they are elected. A new legislative session is assembled every two years on the first Monday in January of odd-numbered years. However, since there is no limit on the days the General Assembly may convene, it can respond immediately to emergency situations. While in session, the Ohio House generally meets Tuesday through Thursday. Committee meetings may be held at any time before or after floor sessions. Both are open to the public. 

Currently, the Ohio House of Representatives is searching for qualified undergraduate students for volunteer internships and legislative page positions. Interning and paging for the legislature provides an opportunity for self-motivated, outgoing college students to gain an understanding of the legislative process by actively participating in it. The duties that will be assigned to each intern will vary due to each office having different agendas and constituent caseloads. 

Interning and paging is a great way to gain resume experience, meet many people and expand your knowledge of how state government operates on the legislative level. Former interns and pages have benefited from their service by acquiring professional experience, school credit, contacts, and in some instances full-time legislative staff positions after their graduation.

CoverMyMeds

CoverMyMeds

CoverMyMeds was founded in 2008 with a mission to automate the medication prior authorization (PA) process, saving health care professionals valuable time and ensuring patients receive the medication they require, faster.

Prior authorization requests are a permission slip from health plans for the patient to begin taking a medication, ensuring the right therapy for the condition and cost effectiveness. Before CoverMyMeds, the PA process was paper based and accomplished through multiple faxes and phone calls between prescribers, pharmacists and health plans.

Today, CoverMyMeds works with electronic health record systems (EHRs), health plans, pharmacy systems and prescribers to initiate, transmit and track the status of PA requests within the clinical workflow.

CoverMyMeds was the first, and remains the only all drug, all payer prior authorization solution.

We work with the who’s who in healthcare to bring free prior authorization solutions to more than 500,000 prescribers and pharmacists.
