Immigrant NYers: Time is Now to Pass “Coverage for All”

Arline Cruz, associate director of health programs for Make the Road New York, said a recent report estimates the bill would bring coverage to 46,000 people.

“With the ACA (Affordable Care Act), we’ve been able to make really large strides and really decrease the coverage gap,” Cruz pointed out. “However, immigrant New Yorkers still remain the highest uninsured population at the moment.”
