14 14 Why is it the right time for the State to take over responsibility for county Medicaid program growth and administration? 1. Current 3% local Medicaid growth cap exceeds 2% Property Tax Cap. 2. MRT and Federal health care reforms require greater administrative centralization to achieve efficiency and effectiveness goals.

17 17  Federal Health Care Reform requires single point of entry.  Enables fundamental rethinking/retooling of how Medicaid program is managed.  Results: Services delivered more uniformly, efficiently, and cost effectively.  State savings from capping administrative reimbursement at FY 2012 levels partially offsets State costs of takeover.

19 Work Ahead

20  New York is poised to fundamentally transform its Medicaid program into a national model for cost-effective health care delivery.  New York is also well positioned to ensure that Medicaid reform also means more comprehensive health system reform.  The Medicaid Redesign Team has developed a multi-year action plan that if fully implemented will not only bend the state’s Medicaid cost curve but also improve health outcomes for more than 5 million New Yorkers.  To fully implement the MRT action plan, a ground-breaking new Medicaid 1115 waiver will probably be necessary.  Still a lot of work to be done: It is up to the state, stakeholders and the broader New York community to continue to work together to successfully implement this multi-year action plan. 20
