At the last Medicaid Redesign Team “public hearing” in NYC we were given less than 24 hour notice and the wrong address was on the notice. But with looming and recent cuts to Medicaid, the voice of the public and those directly impacted are more important now than ever.
That’s why when the Medicaid Redesign Team did not give us a chance to fully prepare and turn-out, we made some noise!
Now, the Medicaid Redesign team is giving us another opportunity for us to raise our issues. We must take advantage of this moment by showing up and speaking out.
Join us on Monday, March 2, 2020 at 10:30 am to show that we are paying attention and will not accept changes to Medicaid without our input! At 10:30 am we will be having a press conference and it is very important that StateWide members turn out to the press conference and invite as many people as possible. We are depending on YOU to help show how powerful our voices are! #NYSeniorsInAction
This event will take place at the John E. Reeves Great Hall at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). The street entrance to the Hall is available at 218 W 28th St New York City, NY 10001.
To get on the list to speak arrive before 10:30 am. Please see additional information below.
