Urge Governor to Reform and Invest in Nursing Home Medicaid Program

LeadingAge NY is urging Governor Hochul to reform and invest in nursing home Medicaid rates in the 2024-25 Executive Budget Proposal, and now is the time to begin engaging your state legislators in our pre-budget advocacy efforts!

LeadingAge NY strongly encourages our nursing home members to contact their state Assembly Member and Senator and ask them to support our 2024-25 budget request:

  1. Schedule a meeting or phone call with your legislators to discuss the need for comprehensive investment.
  1. Ask your legislators to write to the Governor in support of comprehensive reform and investment in the nursing home Medicaid program.
  1. Use your voice! Send a letter to the Governor on your own organization letterhead!

NEXT STEPS: Amplify our message by including others in our digital letter-writing campaign! LeadingAge NY has created the below digital letter-writing campaigns, written from the perspective of different stakeholders. Please share these letters with your networks of advocates to amplify our message!

There are more nursing home pre-budget advocacy resources on the way, but for now, it is critical that members educate their state representatives about the need for nursing home Medicaid reform. Thank you for your advocacy, and let us know if you have any questions.
