Earlier today, we posted about the recent enrollment reports released by the federal government and our own NY State of Health. HCFANY released a full statement about New York’s report, commending the NY State of Health for strong progress enrolling hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers, and urging the State to adopt additional measures to improve affordability and quality for New Yorkers.
Many of the children who enrolled in Child Health Plus live in households with income between 150 to 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). This means their parents would be eligible for the Basic Health Program – covering families between 138 and 200 percent FPL. And, we are urging New York to adopt one!
Additionally, the report showed that 1 in 4 individuals who enrolled with financial assistance got in-person help from a Navigator, Certified Application Counselor or Broker. Consumer assistance programs continue to be critical resources for consumers, and they need more support!
