Health Safety Net Cuts Postponed to June 1st

Just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that in response to advocates' and the Legislature's advocacy efforts, EOHHS is delaying the Health Safety Net regulatory changes that were set to go into effect today until June 1st.

In addition, the amendment we had been working on with the Legislature to forestall the cuts until June 30th did not make it into the final version of the FY2016 supplemental budget.

However, the delayed implementation of the eligibility changes gives us a little more time to regroup and strategize.
