Testimony: Preserve the Status Quo for Home Care Eligibility

Medicaid represents our societal commitment to ensuring health care access for seniors and people with disabilities—many who are experiencing poverty or in crisis—to enable them to remain in their homes and avoid institutionalization. Below is an excerpt from our memorandum of support repealing restrictions on Medicaid home care eligibility:

“NYLAG supports repeal of the restrictions on Medicaid home care eligibility enacted last year that arbitrarily and illegally limit eligibility for Medicaid personal care and consumer-directed personal assistance (CDPAP) services, and that covertly shuts down entirely the small but crucial preventative ‘housekeeping’ home care program. Since these restrictions are not yet implemented, repeal will preserve the status quo for home care eligibility, saving the cost of implementation of this massive change.”
