Statewide Survey: Community Engagement in DSRIP

Medicaid Matters New York (MMNY), the statewide coalition that advocates on the interests of Medicaid beneficiaries, is conducting a survey to assess the degree to which CBOs are engaged in DSRIP. A link to the survey can be found here, along with more background information about DSRIP.  More information about DSRIP is available here, and you can find out which DSRIP entity is active in your region using this map.

Community-based entities of any type, in any part of New York State, are encouraged to complete the survey. The survey results will be used to help MMNY assess what the needs are around the state for advancing community interests in local DSRIP regions. It will also allow MMNY to conduct state level advocacy to ensure that the DSRIP process engages CBOs in ways that recognize their strengths and address barriers to their participation.

DSRIP is a new health care payment and delivery system being implemented by New York State, which will impact how the State’s over six million Medicaid beneficiaries access health care services and how they experience care. All New Yorkers deserve access to high-quality care and the chance to experience good outcomes, including Medicaid beneficiaries. These significant changes, however, may disengage Medicaid beneficiaries from care if community-based organizations (CBOs) are not included in a meaningful way. Safety net providers and CBOs are rooted in low-income, underserved communities and have a trusted history of service to Medicaid beneficiaries.

Results of this survey will be shared only in the aggregate; individual responses to this survey will not be shared.
