Letter dated June 29, 2020 from NYLAG, Legal Aid Society, CIDNY, Empire Justice Center & other organizations demanding the state halt disenrollment of almost 20,000 MLTC members from their MLTC plans because they have been in nursing homes for more than 3 months. With visitors banned from nursing homes, they'll have no help to appeal - and many will be forced to stay in the nursing homes, at risk of exposure to COVID.
