Save Our Safety Net – Video from Medicaid Redesign Hearings

On February 4, 2011 – Governor Cuomo’s Mediciad Redesign Team (MRT) held a public hearing in NYC. The MRT has been charged with finding $2.85 billion of cuts to New York’s Medicaid budget by March 1st. The MRT – which has a disappointing lack of consumer voicesĀ  – gave New Yorkers 2 minutes during the hearings to give their suggestions for Medicaid redesign.

This video captures the repeatedly expressed sentiment that cuts to already struggling safety net providers will have catastrophic impacts on low-income, immigrant and disabled communities.
