|New Yorkers and the O&P profession need your help! |
Take 2 minutes and reach out to your state representative. We need to secure additional signatures on a letter in support of NY Medicaid fee schedule reform, which will positively impact access to critical and timely O&P services.
This sign-on letter is championed by Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther of District 100 and Ted Drygas of the NY State Chapter of the Academy.
THE GOAL IS TO GET OVER 50 OF NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY MEMBERS TO SIGN ON IN SUPPORT OF:
· Updating the 30+ year old NY Medicaid O&P fee schedule to prevailing Medicare rates.
· Adding in missing codes to NY Medicaid’s fee schedule.
· Regulate Medicaid HMO third party benefit management companies to follow NY Medicaid fee schedules.
Maximizing the number of signatures we receive will lead to legislative budget support with the opportunity to update the fee schedule and improve access to care.
The time to act is NOW as the budget proposal will be finalized in March and Ms. Gunther recently sent the letter to her Assembly member colleagues.

(You do not need to know the name of your Assembly member; that information will be filled in automatically. Also, feel free to personalize the letter!)
