ALBANY – New York State Senator George Borrello announced Wednesday morning that, among the Medicaid reforms passed in the state budget, are changes designed to reduce excessive costs related to the Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) services.
Borrello said these changes happen by incentivizing efficiency among transportation brokers, including greater utilization of public transit systems. The reforms are projected to produce savings up to $93 million with even greater benefits in subsequent years.
Borrello appeared on WNYNewsNow‘s daily broadcast to discuss the changes, along with several other issues that are ongoing locally and throughout New York State.
