LeadingAge NY Issues Comprehensive Final Budget Analysis

LeadingAge NY has issued a comprehensive overview of the final 2018-19 State Budget, summarizing provisions that affect multiple long term care, post-acute care, and senior service lines. The $168.3 billion plan, effective for the period April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019, was agreed to by Governor Cuomo and the Legislature on Fri., March 30th and reflects the eighth consecutive year of 2 percent or less growth in State operations spending.

LeadingAge NY worked on several issues during the budget process and was able to advance key objectives, secure revisions to some budget proposals, and successfully oppose other proposals that would have adversely affected members, the people they serve, and the services they provide. Our success would not have been possible without members’ continued advocacy efforts. Thank you!
