MEDICAID MCO SALES TAX MATERIALS
The FY 18/19 Executive Budget proposes a plan to address the loss of Medicaid managed care sales tax revenue to the state, counties and transit authorities. The plan utilizes a waiver from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that will allow the state to fully replace its sales tax loss but only provides counties a one-time allocation that ranges from approximately three months to a year or more of the forgone revenue. CCAO sent out materials last week to help our members advocate for an equitable and long-term solution to the loss of the Medicaid managed care sales tax. These materials have been updated and the latest versions are in the following links: talking points, sample letter and sample resolution. If you have any questions on these materials please contact CCAO staffers Brad Cole or Kate Neithammer.
