Advocacy

 

An indispensable voice in Washington, Albany, and the health care community, GNYHA uses its policy expertise, vast analytical tools, and uncommon resources to advocate for our members. GNYHA educates policymakers and State and Federal legislators on the complexities and constraints hospitals face in delivering care.


Federal Budget & Deficit Reduction

Every year, Congress and the President debate a budget that often includes important health care funding and policy

decisions that can impact a variety of health care programs. In recent years they have also debated major deficit reduction proposals. These debates have focused on changes to Medicare hospital reimbursement and Medicaid funding to states. GNYHA advocacy focuses on protecting vital Medicare and Medicaid payments that enable hospitals to continue providing high-quality patient care.
