  • Taking Ownership: The Patient's Role in Medicaid

    December 05, 2012


    New York has the nation's largest Medicaid program, serving over 5 million enrollees at a cost of $54 billion annually. But a small percentage of Medicaid patients, with chronic medical and behavioral health diseases account for a disproportionate share of the program's total spending.


    While New York is taking steps to reduce costs, improve outcomes and provide coordinated care for all Medicaid recipients, system reform is not all that is neeeded. Taking Ownership: The Patient's role in Medicaid, a new report from the Empire Center, profiles some reforms largely overlooked in the state's redesign. Healthcare experts from around the state will participated in a panel discussion on December 5, 2012 at the Albany Institute of History & Art.
