For those of you who were not able to make the Medicaid Redesign Hearings earlier this month, the Save Our Safety Net Campaign (SOS-C) has put together a short YouTube video capturing some of the comments made by consumer advocates at the NYC Medicaid Redesign hearings.

The real question now is whether or not the Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) will act on the public’s sentiments. The MRT is currently tasked with evaluating and scoring a series of 49 proposals (culled from the list of 271 submitted to the department from various sources). The deadline for this hefty task is noon this Friday, Feb. 18.
