New York State implements another cut: a 2% across the board Medicaid payment reduction.
The final 2011-12 state budget, Chapter 59 of the Laws of 2011, requires a 2% across the board reduction to most Medicaid payments. Such payment reductions will apply for dates of service on or after April 1, 2011. The reduction will remain in effect for dates of service through March 31, 2013. These provisions were enacted to meet the target of the Medicaid Redesign initiative authorized by the Governor.
