NY Gov. Paterson announces budget cuts; education and Medicaid to bear the brunt of cutback

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on November 12, 2008

“Medicaid and other health care programs would be cut by $572 million this year and $1.2 billion next year under the governor’s plan. The governor is proposing to reduce the amount of money the state reimburses health care providers for a variety of procedures and also to eliminate the annual inflation adjustment made to Medicaid reimbursements. The state will also increase taxes on health insurers.”
