Medicaid Global Cap


The "Global Cap" on New York State–Share Medicaid spending was enacted with the 2011–12 State budget and subsequently extended through March 31, 2015. The Global Cap was among the recommendations from the Medicaid Redesign Team, of which GNYHA was a member. GNYHA provides detailed monitoring and sector analysis of spending under the Global Cap and advocates for appropriate changes as the health care system responds to the current environment.
