Governor Cuomo Accepts Recommendations from the Medicaid Redesign Team


Governor Andrew Cuomo has accepted a report from the Medicaid Redesign Team, which introduces a global cap on State Medicaid expenditures of $15.109 billion.
The report included 79 recommendations to redesign and restructure the Medicaid program to be more efficient and get better results for patients.
New York spends more than twice the national average on Medicaid on a per capita basis, and spending per enrollee is the second highest in the nation.
However, New York ranks 21st out of all states for overall health system quality and ranks last among all states for avoidable hospital use and costs.
