MRT Implementation to Date
Are We Lowering Costs and Improving Outcomes?
The MRT is Bending the Cost
Curve
o
Lowered total Medicaid spending by $4 billion in Year 1.
o
Lived within the Global Spending Cap for two full years.
o
Finished Year Two $200 million under the Global
Spending Cap.
o
Thanks to the MRT the state was able to absorb a $1.1 billion
federal revenue loss due to a change in Medicaid financing for
DD services.
o
Savings has been especially significant in New York City.

NYS Managed Care Plans
#2 in the Nation
Example #1
o
National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) analyzed New
York’s Medicaid health care plans against 76 different quality
measures.
o
NYS plans are especially successful when it comes to offering the right
type of care for common, costly diseases, for example:




o
Diabetes;
Childhood obesity;
Smoking cessation;
Follow-up care for the mentally ill.
NCQA found that New York is a national leader, second only to
Massachusetts.

Patients with little or no historic connection to traditional
health care are benefiting the most.
o
Preliminary results are for Phase 1 and Phase 2 counties.

Affordable Care Act (ACA)
ACA Implementation & Medicaid
Administration Reform
o
o
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a tremendous opportunity
for New York State:

One million New Yorkers will gain access to health insurance;

Additional federal financing for Medicaid will help ensure program
sustainability;

Building a new health insurance exchange will allow the state to
phase-out the out-of-date WMS eligibility system.
New York operates its own exchange and we are using the
launch of the exchange to also facilitate the state takeover of
Medicaid administration from counties.

ACA Implementation &
Enrollment to Date
o
587,486 New Yorkers have completed their applications and 328,796 have
enrolled for coverage since the launch of the Marketplace on October 1,
2013.
o
New Yorkers continue to enroll each day through the Marketplace, and
individuals who purchase their coverage directly are seeing premium rates
that are 53 percent lower than the rates in effect in 2013 for comparable
coverage.
o
The NY State of Health open enrollment period runs through March 31,
2014. New York is on track to meet or exceed its enrollment goal of 1.1
million people by the end of 2016.
o
NY State of Health Customer Service Center representatives have
answered nearly 463,000 calls since the launch of the Marketplace.

MRT Waiver Amendment
MRT Waiver Amendment
o
We currently have a waiver amendment pending with CMS that
would allow us to reinvest $10 billion in MRT generated federal
savings back into New York’s health care delivery system.
o
The amendment is essential to both fully implement the MRT
action plan as well as prepare for ACA implementation.
o
The amendment, which requires federal approval, is a unique
opportunity to address the underlying challenges facing NYS health
care delivery:
 Lack of primary care;
 Weak health care safety net;
 Health disparities; and
 Transition challenges to managed care.

FIDA Demonstration
FIDA Demonstration
o
A key step in the move to “care management for all” is the
proposed Fully Integrated Dual Advantage (FIDA)
demonstration project.
o
Through this effort, over 120,000 dually eligible members
(Medicaid and Medicare) will be enrolled into full-integrated
managed care products.
o
The enrollment process will rely on a “conversion in place”
approach under which duals enrolled in MLTCP plans will see
their Medicare benefit added to their managed care plan’s
portfolio.

Budget

o
Reinvestment of Medicaid Savings and Rate
Protection to Preserve Capacity and
Access to Community-Based Services
2014-15 Executive Budget proposes to reinvest Medicaid savings for
Behavioral Health services to expand community-based services.

Pre Managed Care - Reinvestments for behavioral health programs
(target - critical inpatient programs) that may close, or have already
closed, will ensure that capacity is preserved in the impacted
communities as the State prepares for the transition to Managed Care.

Post Managed Care - Reinvestment under Managed Care for any
behavioral health savings for inpatient and other reductions to expand
community based services under HARPs/Managed Care including the
development of 1915(i)-like services.
The Budget also extends clinic rate protection and allows for flexible
rate alternatives if the plans, providers and the state agree.
