New York Partnership Plan

  • New York Medicaid Redesign Team - HIV/AIDS Coverage Expansion (modified: 2 years ago)
    New York is requesting to amend its demonstration to broaden state programs to treat and prevent HIV/AIDS. These programs focus on increased testing in hospitals, access to home testing, targeted intervention for individuals who are at high risk for HIV, and enhanced linkage to care for people infected with HIV. The federal comment period will be open from December 30, 2016 through January 30, 2017.
  • New York Partnership Plan - Amendment to serve Incarcerated Individuals (modified: 2 years ago)
    New York submitted a request to amend its 1115 demonstration to provide limited transitional coverage for services to incarcerated individuals who are enrolled in Medicaid for the 30 days prior to release from jail or prison. The state's goal is to decrease emergency department visits, hospitalizations, overdoses, and recidivism for recently released offenders who have two or more chronic diseases, HIV/AIDS, or a serious mental illness. The federal comment period will be open from October 21, 2016 through November 20, 2016.
  • New York Partnership Plan - VAP Exception Request (modified: 3 years ago)
    The New York Partnership Plan demonstration is organized around Performing Provider Systems (PPS)-an alliance of multiple providers who collectively take responsibility for the health outcomes of populations served within the PPS. CMS requires that each PPS be led by a Safety Net provider. Some Safety Net providers opt to create a new not-for-profit corporation to better govern the PPS. CMS' terms and conditions for the demonstration requires that entities that wish to create a new corporation to govern the PPS must submit an application for a Vital Access Provider (VAP) exception. New York is seeking approval for VAP exceptions for Samaritan PPS and Bassett PPS. The federal public comment period will be open from November 2, 2015 through December 2, 2015.
  • New York Partnership Plan: Uncompensated Care Amendment (modified: 3 years ago)
    New York has submitted an amendment to its Partnership Plan demonstration to extend the Clinic Uncompensated Care Program through March 31, 2017. This program was previously a part of the Partnership Plan demonstration but the waiver authority was inadvertently allowed to sunset by the state. This amendment will reinstate the state's ability to receive Federal matching funds for the Clinic Uncompensated Care Program. The federal public comment period will be open from September 21, 2015 through October 20, 2015.
