THE SCOOP: On Monday, March 2nd, the New York State Medicaid Redesign Team II (MRT II) will hold a Public Comment Forum to give members of the public the opportunity to speak about changes to our State’s Medicaid program within the upcoming fiscal year State Budget.
Before the Public Comment Forum, many consumer health advocacy groups and Medicaid enrollees will hold a press conference to voice their concerns with the MRT II process and to call for such provisions as the elimination of the New York State Medicaid Global Cap.
Don’t miss out on this important event and opportunity to make YOUR voice heard by attending the Press Conference and speaking at the Public Forum! And make sure to share your experience on social media using the hashtag #NoMedicaidCuts. The current and future livelihood of New York’s most vulnerable children – and, by extension, of our entire State – depend on the vitality of our Medicaid program.
