HANYS President Dennis Whalen's Statement on CMS Approval of the Medicaid Waiver
The approval of an $8 billion federal Medicaid waiver now provides our hospitals and health systems with a much-needed pathway to transformation. The Governors firm perseverance and intense work got New York the approval it needed. Now we must continue the hard work to transform health care throughout and across our state to meet the health needs of our communities with the highest-quality, most effective, and most efficient care.
