Dear Mr. Bassiri:

Thank you for your recent request for an amendment of the New York section 1115 demonstration titled, “New York Medicaid Redesign Team” (Project Number 11-W-00114/2). The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) received New York’s health equity reform amendment application on September 2, 2022. We reviewed the new components proposed through this amendment in accordance with 42 CFR 431.412(a) and find the state’s application to be complete.

New York’s amendment application will be posted on for a 30-day federal comment period in accordance with 42 CFR 431.416(b). The state’s application will be available here.

We look forward to working with you and your staff on the review of this demonstration amendment. If you have any questions, please contact your CMS project officer, Mr. Jonathan Morancy, at
