CHANGE Healthcare and Impact on Mental Health and Addiction Providers

March 6, 2024

We just sent the attached letter re: the ongoing CHANGE Healthcare crisis to state leaders representing the Executive Chamber, DFS, DoH, OMH, OASAS and DOB.


Good afternoon,

Please see the attached letter signed by 11 statewide associations representing OASAS and OMH community-based mental health and addiction agencies serving local communities across New York.

We have serious concerns for the continued viability of these agencies given the ongoing CHANGE Healthcare outage that is jeopardizing access to care for tens of thousands of New Yorkers each day.  We need your assistance.

Thank you for prioritizing our requests.
