Feds Backed Cuomo Medicaid Cuts

The federal government approved a deal with the Cuomo administration that dramatically slashes Medicaid payments to New York for services provided to developmentally disabled people.
Under the restructuring, Medicaid payments will fall from more than $5,100 to $1,200 per resident per day at centers that serve the developmentally disabled. The new rate comes on the heels of a scathing report by the House Committee on Oversight and Government that charged New York overbilled Medicaid for these services by $15 billion over 20 years.
