1.5M New Yorkers could lose healthcare
A report released Tuesday shows that 1.5 million New Yorkers could experience gaps in health-insurance coverage due to fluctuations in their incomes and eligibility for certain programs and subsidies. Thirty percent of non-elderly residents who are below 400 percent of the federal poverty level—which comes to $76,360 annually for a three-person family—could be affected, according to the Coalition of New York State Public Health Plans. New Yorkers with incomes that are just above the cutoff for Medicaid eligibility will be most impacted, the report said.
