New York Near Top for Children’s Health Insurance

ALBANY, N.Y. – New York state reduced the number of uninsured children by almost 40 percent in two years, the fifth largest decline in uninsured children in the nation, according to a report released today by the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families.

The report shows between 2013 and 2015, the number of children without health insurance in the state dropped by 67,000, achieving an overall insurance rate of 97.5 percent. 

Kate Breslin, president and CEO of the Schuyler Center for Analysis and Advocacy, says implementation of the Affordable Care Act was a big part of the progress.
