New York

The New York State Department of Health announced that enrollment in the Fully Integrated Duals Advantage  (FIDA) demonstration Region 2, Suffolk and Westchester counties, has been delayed until further notice. The delay will allow plans to address provider network adequacy issues and allow them to focus their efforts to increase outreach and marketing in Region 1, New York City and Nassau County, which went live on January 1. Also, according to a recent article in Capital New York, 765 individuals have opted into the FIDA program and 27,932 individuals have opted out.
