State Implements 1% Across-the-Board Medicaid Cut

Stephen Hanse Carl Pucci and Allison Gold in Finance & Reimbursement

DOH has issued a Provider Notice imposing a 1% Across-the-Board (ATB) cut to all non-exempt Medicaid providers (including Managed Care plans), effective 1/1/20 through 3/31/2020. The estimated overall impact of this cut is approximately $124M (State & Federal share). The State has statutory authority to implement an ATB cut to all Medicaid providers of up to $190M (State share). At the present time, NYSHFA is reviewing the State’s requirement to secure CMS approval to implement this cut as the State Register indicates that the Department is filing a SPA.

NYSHFA will continue to aggressively oppose this and any additional Medicaid cuts proposed by the State as it seeks to address New York’s estimated $4B Medicaid shortfall.
