CPC Speaks with FAQ NYC on Home Care Reform


CPC President and CEO Wayne Ho joined hosts of FAQ NYC on March 23rd to discuss the New York State budget and legislative changes needed in order to provide critical, life-saving home care services to Medicaid patients.

Hosts Dr. Christina Greer and Harry Siegel interviewed Wayne about the operations and impacts of CPC Home Attendant Program, Inc. (CPCHAP) as well as the active bills that would improve the sector for both workers and patients.

CPC and CPCHAP continue to call for the following legislative changes of New York’s home care system, which all advocates, home care agencies, and community members alike can also help with by calling their State legislators:

• End the 24-hour rule for home care (A3145A Epstein/S359A Persaud)

• Pass Fair Pay for Home Care (S5374 May/A6329 Gottfried)

• Lift the Medicaid cap to enable at least $3 billion for Fair Pay for Home Care and $1 billion to mandate 24-hour shifts be converted to 12-hour split shifts without impacting care hours for patients

• Pass the New York Health Act (A6058 Gottfried/S5474 Rivera) to provide comprehensive health care and long-term care for every New Yorker
