EOHHS has released proposed rules that will significantly restrict eligible services in the Health Safety Net as early as April 1. The rules can take effect only after a public notice and comment period. The attached FAQ  describes the HSN program, the proposed cuts, the rationale for the cuts to the extent they have been explained, and the reasons why the cuts are a bad idea that will hurt low income people, safety net hospitals and community health centers. We hope this information will be helpful to you and your organization in preparing testimony or submitting comments opposing the proposed changes.
