Final Sign-On Letters & Budget Analysis

Posted on May 14th, 2013

Thank you to all the organizations who signed onto the multiple sign-on letters in the last week. For your records, attached are the final letters on the following topics:

  1. Concerns with the Exchange Bill QHP provisions in HB 1947
  2. Concerns with the Arbitrary Expenditure Limit Bill and impact on Medicaid Home Care services in SB 5895
  3. Concerns with the Senate Proposed Budget and the impact on eligibility services at HCA

As the special session starts on Monday, we may be sending out additional sign-on letters for your consideration to protect or advance key health policy items and funding priorities. Also attached is a great document from the Budget and Policy Center which outlines major areas of concern in the Senate Proposed Budget, which assumes fake savings to the tune of $600 million; creating an unbalanced budget.

We will not have a weekly call during special session, but we will be sending regular updates as the negotiations unfold.

Thank you for all your work.
