Potomac Law Group Partner Derek Adams joined lawmakers and spoke at a press conference in New York City's Rego Park on Wednesday, October 11, in support of 25 home health care agencies the firm represents that face potential closure as a result of the New York State Department of Health’s cuts to the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP), a vital program which allows more than 100,000 disabled and elderly New Yorkers to receive in-home personal care services through New York’s Medicaid program.

Mr. Adams was joined by Senators Leroy Comrie and Joseph Addabbo Jr. and Assemblymen Andrew Hevesi, Nader Sayegh and David Weprin—all of whom spoke about the hardship elderly Medicaid patients will endure in their districts should the planned elimination of an estimated 270 CDPAP agencies throughout the State (approximately 60% of the providers) be allowed to stand. Many of the agencies targeted for closure are small, local and minority owned agencies that care for specific culturally diverse populations in and around New York City.
