New York lawmakers pass big cuts in healthcare

New York Times, June 8, 2010

New York lawmakers approved $775 million in cuts and other savings from the state's healthcare budget after Gov. David A. Paterson inserted the reductions into emergency spending legislation submitted to the Legislature to keep the state government from shutting down. The cuts will affect hospitals, nursing homes, and a lengthy list of other health-related programs. The legislation also requires the state to save an additional $300 million a year by cracking down on Medicaid fraud, waste, and abuse, the New York Times reports.
