The MRT is Bending the Cost Curve

  • Lowered total Medicaid spending by $4 billion in Year 1.

  • Lived within the Global Spending Cap for two full years.

  • Finished Year Two $200 million under the Global Spending Cap.

  • Thanks to the MRT the state was able to absorb a $1.1 billion federal revenue loss due to a change in Medicaid financing for DD services.

  • Savings has been especially significant in New York City.

Nys managed care plans 2 in the nation

NYS Managed Care Plans#2 in the Nation

Example #1

  • National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) analyzed New York’s Medicaid health care plans against 76 different quality measures.

  • NYS plans are especially successful when it comes to offering the right type of care for common, costly diseases, for example:

    • Diabetes;

    • Childhood obesity;

    • Smoking cessation;

    • Follow-up care for the mentally ill.

  • NCQA found that New York is a national leader, second only to Massachusetts.

Affordable care act aca

Affordable Care Act (ACA)


Aca implementation medicaid administration reform

ACA Implementation & Medicaid Administration Reform

  • The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a tremendous opportunity for New York State:

    • One million New Yorkers will gain access to health insurance;

    • Additional federal financing for Medicaid will help ensure program sustainability;

    • Building a new health insurance exchange will allow the state to phase-out the out-of-date WMS eligibility system.

  • New York operates its own exchange and we are using the launch of the exchange to also facilitate the state takeover of Medicaid administration from counties.

Aca implementation enrollment to date

ACA Implementation & Enrollment to Date

  • 587,486 New Yorkers have completed their applications and 328,796 have enrolled for coverage since the launch of the Marketplace on October 1, 2013.

  • New Yorkers continue to enroll each day through the Marketplace, and individuals who purchase their coverage directly are seeing premium rates that are 53 percent lower than the rates in effect in 2013 for comparable coverage.

  • The NY State of Health open enrollment period runs through March 31, 2014. New York is on track to meet or exceed its enrollment goal of 1.1 million people by the end of 2016.

  • NY State of Health Customer Service Center representatives have answered nearly 463,000 calls since the launch of the Marketplace.

Mrt waiver amendment

MRT Waiver Amendment


Mrt waiver amendment1

MRT Waiver Amendment

  • We currently have a waiver amendment pending with CMS that would allow us to reinvest $10 billion in MRT generated federal savings back into New York’s health care delivery system.

  • The amendment is essential to both fully implement the MRT action plan as well as prepare for ACA implementation.

  • The amendment, which requires federal approval, is a unique opportunity to address the underlying challenges facing NYS health care delivery:

    • Lack of primary care;

    • Weak health care safety net;

    • Health disparities; and

    • Transition challenges to managed care.

    FIDA Demonstration


    Fida demonstration1

    FIDA Demonstration

    • A key step in the move to “care management for all” is the proposed Fully Integrated Dual Advantage (FIDA) demonstration project.

    • Through this effort, over 120,000 dually eligible members (Medicaid and Medicare) will be enrolled into full-integrated managed care products.

    • The enrollment process will rely on a “conversion in place” approach under which duals enrolled in MLTCP plans will see their Medicare benefit added to their managed care plan’s portfolio.

    Reinvestment of Medicaid Savings and Rate Protection to Preserve Capacity and Access to Community-Based Services

    2014-15 Executive Budget

    • 2014-15 Executive Budget proposes to reinvest Medicaid savings for Behavioral Health services to expand community-based services.

      • Pre Managed Care - Reinvestments for behavioral health programs (target - critical inpatient programs) that may close, or have already closed, will ensure that capacity is preserved in the impacted communities as the State prepares for the transition to Managed Care.

      • Post Managed Care - Reinvestment under Managed Care for any behavioral health savings for inpatient and other reductions to expand community based services under HARPs/Managed Care including the development of 1915(i)-like services.

    • The Budget also extends clinic rate protection and allows for flexible rate alternatives if the plans, providers and the state agree.
