CHCANYS Senior Policy Director Beverly Grossman testified at a joint Senate Finance and Assembly Ways and Means Legislative Hearing on the health and Medicaid sections of the 2015-16 New York State Executive Budget on Monday, February 2,2015.
In her testimony, Ms. Grossman stressed the need for increased financial and capital investment in the community-based safety net providers whose work is integral to the current efforts to transform New York’s health care delivery system. Her comments highlighted the 50-year track record of FQHCs in caring for and designing effective interventions for vulnerable, medically-underserved populations, and included a number of recommendations for facilitating the shift away from inpatient-focused care by providing the resources necessary to strengthen and expand their operations.
