Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) II

As part of the NYS’s Fiscal Year 2021 budget process, Governor Cuomo re-constituted the Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) into a new task force called MRT II. This workgroup brough various healthcare stakeholders to the table to find solutions that will contain spending growth in the Medicaid program. The group voted last week on recommendations to achieve $2.5 billion in savings, including specific recommendations for the Health Home Program. The Coalition will continue to follow this process closely and will be submitting recommendations on how to achieve the programmatic efficiencies detailed in the MRT II Executive Summary while preserving delivery of high-quality care management.
