Health coverage and care are critical for every family. When everyone has access to affordable, quality health care, our communities are all safer and stronger. With our partners and allies, we’re fighting for #Coverage4All, to provide state-funded health insurance coverage for 154,000 undocumented New Yorkers who currently do not qualify for any federal- or state-funded comprehensive coverage.
Immigrants make up 54 percent of New York’s essential workforce—and despite risking their lives to keep our communities fed and cared for, thousands don’t have access to health insurance because of their immigration status. We can’t protect New Yorkers from COVID-19 and its economic impact if we deny health care to the communities at the frontlines of the fight.
