On this week’s Prognosis Ohio, Dan Skinner talks with reporter Marty Schladen from the Ohio Capital Journal about Pharmacy Benefit Manager's (PBM) and the “obscure scheme” that has Ohio taxpayers paying much more than they should for Medicaid drugs.

A coalition of LGBTQ clinics and organizations are suing to block a Trump administration rule that aims to strip "sex discrimination" protections for transgender people from laws that govern health care. The rule, issued in final form by the Department of Health and Human Services on June 12, is distinct from last week's landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that bars discrimination against LGBTQ people in the workplace.

Dan Skinner talks with Drs. Candy Rinehart, Angela Alston, and Bernadette Melnyk from the Ohio State College of Nursing about the challenges nurses face working during the COVID-19 pandemic and what the nursing field is learning from COVID-19.
