On April 1, 2011, as a result of the recommendations of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT), major changes were made to the laws related to Medicaid in New York State. This program will be a survey of some of the most drastic changes in the law and in the delivery of Medicaid services and how those changes immediately impact current Medicaid beneficiaries and their families as well as future applicants. This program will also provide a guide to legal advocates who assist individuals in planning for and obtaining these services.
