Urging Repeal of 1% Medicaid Cut
On January 6, HCP and 22 health care organizations representing a wide variety of New York State’s heath care providers addressed a letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo urging a repeal of the recent 1% Medicaid cut. The letter cites a history of rising operational costs without adequate rate changes.
“The progressive and positive policy decisions made in New York to take care of the health of our citizens and to compensate adequately the health care workers that deliver care to those in need, should not be borne by unsustainable reimbursement reductions to those providers and entities that employ these workers and ensure that health and long-term care services are available to those in need.”
