SEND YOUR RECOMMENDATION TO NEW YORK STATES MEDICAID REDESIGN TEAM. Tell NYS Medicaid Director Jason Helgerson that millions of dollars can be saved by ending Medicaid funding of routine circumcision.
In the current atmosphere of spiraling health costs, we should focus our dollars where they are needed the most. Circumcision is merely a cosmetic procedure that has been inflicted on innocent baby boys because of ignorance or cultural tradition. While parents may still opt to have circumcisions performed, the taxpayer should not be funding non-therapeutic unnecessary surgery.
