MAP-751E Authorization to Release Medical Information.pdf
NYC form for a Medicaid applicant to authorize HRA to obtain protected health information from their medical providers for purposes of determining disability. This form was used for applicants for disability-based Medicaid (i.e., DAB or SSI-related category), for MBI-WPD, and for SNTs. (Rev'd 6/6/12). As of January 2013, this form should no longer be required, as the State now requests three signed copies of the OCA 960 HIPAA form instead.

NYLAG Support of NY Assembly Bill A4996 - Correcting Violations of Due Process Appeal RIghts in Managed Care Download
A4996 Gottfried MLTC Appeals Bill NYLAG 2014 FINAL.pdf
This bill would correct two due process violations: (1) The lack of "aid continuing" pending an appeal when a managed care plan reduces or terminates home care or other services -- if the "authorization period" for the services has expired, there is a right to appeal but no right to aid continuing. This provides that aid continuing must be given regardless of whether the authorization period has expired. (2) In Managed long term care, consumers must "exhaust" internal appeals before requesting a hearing. This is not required in mainstream managed care, and results in dismissal of many valid appeals because consumers don't know that they must pursue this interim internal appeal.
