We Are All Impacted by Insufficient Funding for Medicaid

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your past support of our collective advocacy efforts to INCREASE and REFORM nursing home Medicaid reimbursement in New York State’s Fiscal Year 2024-25 budget.

The Senate and Assembly one house bills have been presented in response to the Governor’s proposed budget. Over the next few weeks negotiations will take place to come up with a final state budget that is due by April 1.

Both bills call for a repeal of all of the Governor’s cuts with the Assembly adding a 9.5% Medicaid rate increase and the Senate a 10.5% increase.

It is important that the legislators hear that there should be no compromising off of the 10.5% during these negotiations.

Please use the links below  according to your relationship to St. John’s to send a form letter with your signature directly to your New York State Elected Officials.

St. John’s leadership and the seniors we serve appreciate your support.


Charlie Runyon, President and CEO, St. John’s
