Health insurance options for uninsured New Yorkers
New York State is committed to expanding quality health care coverage to uninsured New Yorkers. Governor George E. Pataki proposed and signed into law important legislation that has increased the availability of comprehensive health insurance coverage for New York’s uninsured workers and their families.
Remember, HMOs are required by law to offer HMO/POS coverage to individuals at all times during the year.
This section of the Guide presents three programs designed especially for uninsured New Yorkers and their families.
