14.) Local HCRA 2000 Family Health Plus Costs

 

Supervisor Nellis read the following Resolution:

 

MOTION was made by Councilman Krycia to approve the adoption of the following resolution:

 

 

 

 

RESOLUTION OF THE TOWN OF EDEN

IN SUPPORT OF THE PROPOSED STATE ASSUMPTION OF LOCAL HCRA 2000

FAMILY HEALTH PLUS COSTS

 

WHEREAS,   the Medicaid program is the largest and most volatile component of every county budget in New York State; and

 

WHEREAS,   the Medicaid program represents a significant burden on the local real property taxpayer; and

 

WHEREAS,   the Health Care Reform Act of 2000, or HCRA, dramatically changes New York’s health care system by creating new comprehensive health care insurance programs for the uninsured while providing for the financing of New York’s hospital system, the effect of which, according to the Governor’s office, would be that up to one million people who are currently uninsured could be eligible for coverage under the initiative’s finances as part of HCRA 2000, and

 

WHEREAS,   HCRA 2000 has created the largest unfounded mandate to be passed to local governments in over a decade; and

 

WHEREAS,   under HCRA 2000, county governments will be forced to pay for 25 percent of the cost of the “Family Health Plus” health insurance program and several other mental health and public initiatives funded through the Medicaid program; and

 

WHEREAS,   it is estimated the counties and the City of New York will be required to

Spend an additional $340 million in new Medicaid costs over the next four calendar years; and

 

WHEREAS,   since 1995-96 whole counties and the City of New York have benefited from Medicaid cost containment initiatives put in place and annually renewed as part of the state budget process; prior year Medicaid cost containment, while important to preserve, has not offset the total annual increase in Medicaid local share and since these initiatives are already in the “base” for county budgeting purposes, they do not offset the new Medicaid spending caused by the adoption of Family Health Plus; and

 

WHEREAS,   the “savings” estimates use the local portion of the National Tobacco Settlement as an offset to the local costs associated with Family Health Plus, and while counties were named as party in the National Tobacco Settlement Agreement, they were to receive these funds as a way to reimburse the local taxpayers who have borne the growth of Medicaid over the past decade, not for more Medicaid costs; and

 

WHEREAS,   the Senate Majority, Assembly Majority and Senate Minority have all introduced legislation that would hold counties harmless from the increased Medicaid costs of the Family Health Plus program;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT …

 

RESOLVED, that the Town of Eden supports all efforts of the Senate and Assembly to assume the local costs associated with Family Health Plus and eliminate this onerous

New unfounded mandate; and be it further

 

RESOLVED, that certified copies of this resolution be forwarded to Governor George E. Pataki, Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver Assemblyman Arthur Eve, Assemblyman Brian M. Higgins, Assemblyman Sam Hoyt, Assemblyman Robin L. Schimminger, Assemblyman Richard A. Smith, Assemblyman Paul A. Tokasz, Assemblyman Daniel J. Burling, Assemblyman James P. Hayes, Assemblywoman Sandra Lee Wirth, Senator Mary Lou Rath, Senator William T. Stachowski, and Senator Dale M. Volker.                                          

 

Seconded by Councilman Vacco; all “Ayes”; Motion carried
