Medicaid provides health insurance coverage for 4.8 million New Yorkers, more than 25 percent of people residing in the state.1 With the implementation of federal reform in 2014, perhaps as many as 1 million additional New Yorkers will secure coverage through Medicaid. By any measure, Medicaid is an important building block of health insurance coverage in New York State. Now, with the Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA), a new vision for health insurance coverage in the United States is being advanced, bolstered by significant funding to implement that vision. National health care reform is predicated on the principle that health insurance be accessible, affordable, and stable for all Americans.
