Cuomo's Medicaid Design Team Hands in Report
February 24th, 2011

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Medicaid Redesign Team submitted their plan to the governor and he has accepted it. The team was tasked with saving the state billions of dollars in Medicaid costs as part of the governor’s 2011-2012 budget and their plan would do just that–it trims over $2 billion in costs. Their recommendations include putting a four percent cap on all annual Medicaid funding, reducing aid for home health care, as well as reforming policy relating to malpractice and pharmaceuticals. Two legislators who were part of the team, Assembyman Richard Gottfried and Sen. Kemp Hannon abstained from the vote as did Lara Kassel from Medicaid Matters New York.

Legislators have been concerned that Cuomo’s team would not be able to make the deadline for changes to be maid to Cuomo’s budget proposal. Their concern was misplaced as the group was scheduled to meet tomorrow as well but came to a decision a day early.
