Governor Creates Medicaid Redesign Team

From the Albany Business Review:

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has created a "Medicaid Redesign Team" and given it just a few months to change the state's Medicaid system.

In his Jan. 5 State of the State address, Cuomo noted that New York spends more than twice the national average on Medicaid, on a per capita basis, and is second highest in the nation in spending per enrollee. Even so, the state ranks 21st for overall health system quality and last among all states for avoidable hospital use and costs.

Nothing like a nice tight deadline to get the juices flowing, eh? Read the rest at the Albany Business Review.
