44 New York State Lawmakers Urge Cuomo to Reverse Medicaid Drug Benefit Transfer

Forty-four New York state legislators have signed a letter to Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) expressing “strong opposition” to the scheduled transfer in April of Medicaid managed care pharmacy benefits to Medicaid fee for service. They said the transfer “will have devastating consequences” for 340B health centers, HIV/AIDS clinics, and the state’s special managed care plan for individuals living with HIV/AIDS.

“This new policy will provide little to no benefit to the state and will devastate patients and the safety net providers they rely on for care,” the state lawmakers told Cuomo on Jan. 21. “We urge you to reverse the carve-out as soon as possible.”
