Federal Budget & Deficit Reduction

 

Every year, Congress and the President debate a budget that often includes important health care funding and policy decisions that can impact a variety of health care programs. In recent years they have also debated major deficit reduction proposals. These debates have focused on changes to Medicare hospital reimbursement and Medicaid funding to states. GNYHA advocacy focuses on protecting vital Medicare and Medicaid payments that enable hospitals to continue providing high-quality patient care.
