NYLPI Submits Comments Regarding the New York Section 1332 State Innovation WaiverDecember 1, 2023
“NYLPI’s Health Justice program works to provide comprehensive screenings and legal representation to individuals, particularly those who are in health emergencies, including holistic support by providing our clients information on financial assistance, food banks and housing relief to meet their intersecting needs. The experiences of our clients inform our policy advocacy, and our commitment to seeking health care coverage for all New Yorkers.
With our client communities in mind, we write to: (1) Urge CMS and New York State policymakers to revise the Waiver to use part of the $7.8 billion surplus to cover immigrants; (2) Urge CMS and New York State policymakers to consider policy vehicles that cover more New Yorkers at an affordable price; and (3) Support the State’s decision to eliminate the $15 monthly premium,” the comments read.
