CHCANYS Expresses Support for Assembly & Senate Bill Designating 25% of Transformation Funding to Community-Based Providers Recently introduced Assembly bill A.7977 (Gottfried) and Senate bill S.6376 (Rivera) would add a requirement that 25% of the funds collected through the State’s health care transformation fund be designated for community-based health care providers, including FQHCs. The State health care transformation fund (not the health care facility transformation fund, which is capital funding) was created by the sale of Fidelis to Centene, and is a pool of money of about $2 billion. The funding could be used for a broad range of purposes, including operational activities.
