NYLAG Submits Testimony on Medicaid and Other Health Issues in the Annual NYS Budget

Safeguarding the right to affordable health and long-term care services for seniors experiencing poverty and people with disabilities is paramount. Access to quality healthcare is a fundamental human right that leads to stable housing, jobs, and overall quality of life. Below is an excerpt from our testimony which calls for significant improvements in Medicaid and in health care:

“By adding two more assessments to the already cumbersome home care assessment process, access to Medicaid personal care and CDPAP services will be greatly delayed. These delays will hurt new people enrolling in MLTC plans or seeking services through their local district or Medicaid managed care plan. They will also hurt people already receiving services from an MLT or managed care plan who request an increase in services because of their deteriorating condition or a new medical diagnosis. Though federal regulations require MLTC and other managed care plans to authorize services in 14 days, and in just 3 days in crisis situations, the State’s new battery of assessments will take months to complete before the local district or plan can authorize services. “
