NYS State and the Feds: Make sure money goes to hospitals that are truly serving low-income and uninsured people
There are longstanding inequities in how hospitals have been funded through past Medicaid waivers and other decisions. Over the past ten years, we have witnessed the closure of 19 hospitals in New York City, with many of those closings occurring in low-income, immigrant, and communities of color. Financial distress has been one of the major causes of these closures. We need to make sure that our hospitals are adequately and fairly funded.
