Urge Elected Officials to Reform and Invest in Nursing Home Medicaid Methodology

LeadingAge New York is calling on New York policy makers to INCREASE and REFORM nursing home Medicaid reimbursement and REJECT the Governor’s Budget cuts.  The Assembly and Senate have stood up for nursing home residents by proposing a meaningful increase in Medicaid rates, but we need the Legislature and the Governor to include a 10.5% increase, rebasing and no cuts in the final budget agreement. 

We strongly encourage our nursing home members to contact their state Assembly Member and Senator and urge them to INCREASE and REFORM nursing home Medicaid reimbursement in the final budget for SFY 2024-25!

Take action TODAY for our nursing home residents!

  1. UPDATED: Digital Letter-Writing Campaigns – LeadingAge NY has created the below digital letter-writing campaigns, written from the perspective of different stakeholders. They have been updated to reflect the one-house budget proposals Please share these letters with your networks of advocates to amplify our message!
  2. Use these budget advocacy flyers to engage others in advocacy. These flyers can be printed and/or shared electronically with board members/staff/residents/families/volunteers to educate them about our issues and inspire them to take action! The QR Codes are up-to-date!
  3. Nursing Home Video Advocacy Campaign – Share this video with your networks, along with one of the digital advocacy letters encouraging them to take action and write to legislators!

With only a few short weeks left until the State reaches a final budget agreement, it is critical that members educate their state legislators about the need for nursing home Medicaid investment and reform. Thank you for your advocacy, and let us know if you have any questions.
