How Can US Healthcare Changes Effect New York State?

NYAPRS Note: Given the divisions in Congress and increasing public support for ACA, could new legislation could pass and, if so, what might it look like? If the Medicaid reductions proposed in the House plan were to be reenacted, will states limit enrollment and reduce benefits? Is there a scenario where Medicaid Block grants could be workable for NYS? What are the subtle distinctions between block grants based upon per capita amounts and those based upon historical spending levels? What could the impact of an ACA repeal or other GOP led healthcare changes on NY’s health home, DSRIP and value based payment initiatives? If the Medicaid reductions approached the $2-4 billion impact on the state budget (not including the requirement to absorb local share), where might cuts be targeted?
