What's New?

LEGISLATIVE ALERT: ACTION NEEDED!
MEDICAID MCO SALES TAX - SENATE DID NOT INCLUDE A SOLUTION IN OMNIBUS AMENDMENT

Despite all our hard work in the Senate, it did NOT include language that would address the loss of the Medicaid MCO sales tax for counties and transit authorities. Senator Dolan remains steadfast in his efforts to get this issue addressed. He passed an amendment in committee that creates a point of difference between the House and Senate version so we can continue to fight in conference committee. Read more...

COUNTY OFFICIALS KEEP BEATING THE DRUM FOR PERMANENT MCO FIX

County officials continue their call to be permanently held harmless from the loss of the Medicaid managed care sales tax revenue. The Senate's substitute version of the two-year state budget (HB 49) contained no provision to permanently make up for the loss of revenue to counties and transit authorities. County leaders said the lack of a replacement will be a major burden while they are being asked to increase spending in other areas.  Read more... 

CORSA RECEIVES NATIONAL SAFETY COUNCIL AWARD

The County Risk Sharing Authority Risk Control Team has been recognized by the National Safety Council with the "Remarkable Results" award for their defensive driving courses. These courses have proven to be of tremendous value in reducing losses which in the end will save the county and CORSA money. Contact CORSA Risk Control Manager John Brownlee for more information. 

MEDICAID MANAGED CARE SALES TAX ADVOCACY

Over 60 counties have passed resolutions asking the state to protect counties from the negative effects of the Medicaid MCO sales tax loss.
