What we're accomplishing with your donations.
New York is a national leader in ensuring comprehensive, affordable health insurance for its residents—including providing public coverage to its most vulnerable. Even with recent gains, however, more than 1.1 million New Yorkers remain uninsured. Many more are underinsured, unable to afford high deductibles and copayments. Addressing the needs of the uninsured and underinsured is a critical challenge. UHF’s expertise and independence enable it to work with policymakers, build consensus, convene stakeholders, and conduct in-depth analysis to help tackle complex, urgent coverage and access questions—including how to maintain the state’s critical safety net and bolster the Medicaid program.
