The start of the state's fiscal year is just days away, and the final New York State Budget is coming together. This is an urgent call for active PSSNY members to reach out again to state senators and assembly members to make sure that the Governor's Medicaid "specialty drug" proposal is not in the final budget now being negotiated. It's due April first. All signs point to an on-time budget.Two main points:
Thank You. Now that the Senate and Assembly have released their one-house bills responding to the Governor's budget proposals, we know that pharmacists were heard. Both the Senate and Assembly rejected the Executive's plan to cut pharmacy Medicaid reimbursement for "specialty drugs".
Please stay the course. Make sure the "specialty drug" proposal for Medicaid is not in the final Health budget.
