State Assembly approves bill to expand healthcare coverage to the undocumented

A bill that would expand healthcare coverage to New Yorker residents, including the undocumented, passed a key committee in the state Legislature on Wednesday, January 26.

If enacted, Coverage For All would create a state-funded healthcare option for state residents earning up to 200% of the federal poverty line, according to NY State of Politics blog.
