Medicaid Waiver


In August 2012, New York State submitted an amendment to the State’s Medicaid managed care waiver seeking $10 billion in Federal funds to continue the implementation of cost-saving Medicaid reforms originally proposed by the Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT). The $10 billion in Federal funds would allow New York to invest in innovative models of care and provide vital funding for many of our safety net hospitals. GNYHA strongly supports the MRT waiver request and will continue to work closely with the State throughout the waiver process.
