New York State Advocacy
The Coalition to Protect the Rights of New York’s Dually Eligible (CPRNYDE) is a diverse group of over 50 consumer-based interests, agencies, and perspectives working to shape the managed care programs that coordinate care for 760,000 older and disabled New Yorkers who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.
CPRNDYE is the lead organization of the Voices for Better Health Project in New York, an initiative funded by Community Catalyst that seeks to improve the quality and affordability of care for people with both Medicare and Medicaid. The effort is spearheaded by the Medicare Rights Center and eight other Steering Committee organizations that provide a wealth of expertise and resources to CPRNYDE’s advocacy work. Visit www.nyduals.org to learn more about the coalition and its work.
The New York State Medicare Savings Coalition, led by the Medicare Rights Center, is an alliance of over 150 community-based organizations, advocacy groups and government agencies in New York State. The Coalition is not intended for or open to employees of health insurance companies, health insurance agents or brokers, self-employed individuals, or individuals employed by private for-profit businesses. By bringing government officials and advocates together in dialogue, our meetings offer Coalition members the opportunity to review the latest information on implementing health care programs for people with limited incomes.
Coalition members stay connected through regular e-mail updates, conference calls, enrollment initiatives and advocacy projects. This ongoing exchange allows us to share knowledge about enrollment strategies and compare case scenarios.
