BILL NUMBER:S1588

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 58 of the laws of 2005,
relating to authorizing reimbursements for expenditures made by or on
behalf of social services districts for medical assistance for needy
persons and the administration thereof, in relation to a five year
elimination of the local share for medicaid

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would amend chapter 59 of
the laws of 2005, relating to authorizing reimbursements for
expenditures made by or on behalf of social services districts for
medical assistance for needy persons and the administration thereof in
relation to a five year elimination of-the local share for Medicaid.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. Paragraph (iv) of
subdivision c of section 1 of part C of chapter 58 of the laws of
2005, relating to authorizing reimbursements for expenditures made by
or on behalf of social services districts for medical assistance for
needy persons, is amended and seven new subdivisions (c1) thru (c8)
are added.

Notwithstanding the Provisions of section 368a of the social services
law, or any other provision of law, commencing with the period January
1, 2016 through December 31, 2016, calendar year social services
district medical assistance expenditure amounts for each social
services district shall be reduced by 20% from the 2015 expenditures.
No less than 75% of the savings from this medical assistance reduction
shall be used for property tax levy reductions, or property tax
rebates, effective in the local governments 2017 fiscal year.

The five year plan is implemented in increments over the course of
five years where the medical expenditure reduction amounts for each
social services district is increased 20% a year totaling up to 100%
from 20% in 2016 to 100% in 2021.

The minimum amount of annual property tax reductions resulting from
savings achieved as defined in subdivisions (e1) thru (c5) shall be
determined by the state comptroller and transmitted to each local
government one hundred eighty days in advance of the start of the
fiscal year for which the property tax reduction is to be effective.

JUSTIFICATION: In 2011 a series of resolutions and statements from a
cross section of Western New York local governments along with the New
York State Association of Counties brought forward the issue that New
York's Medicaid program spends in excess of S52 billion dollars a
year, almost 20% of state spending, and that the local share of about
7.3 billion will grow over the next five years by 37%. This figure is
unsustainable to local governments and they are desperate in need of
relief. Increased costs have precipitated a situation in New York
where our population of 19.4 million exceeds the combined Medicaid
expenditures of California with a population of 37.1 million and Texas
with a population of 25 million. In Erie County for example, Medicaid
payments total approximately 200 of the entire Erie County Budget.
Increased costs like this illustrate the need for the state to have a
greater role in managing Medicaid and reducing this mandates burden on
localities.


PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
