All children in New York are eligible for public health insurance, yet there are more than 200,000 uninsured children in the state. The Children, Youth, and Families (CYF) Task Force is committed to ensuring all children in New York are insured and that the State adopts child- and family- friendly policies as it implements the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
The CYF Task Force of the Health Care for All New York (HCFANY) campaign represents diverse constituencies and geographies.
One of the Task Force’s early initiatives is to advocate for a health insurance Exchange that gives all children and families access to comprehensive and affordable coverage. The Task Force supports HCFANY’s five standards around the Exchange, focusing on how following these standards will benefit children, youth and families.
