Partnership for Coverage Releases Report

New York's "Partnership for Coverage" released its final report, nearly two years in the making, on several initiatives to reduce the number of uninsured New Yorkers and the attendant costs of each.

The report itself, found here, is 17 pages long and essentially summarizes what has been done to date to expand coverage and what could be done under various expansion options. The latter are grouped into four rough categories which are: "Public Health Insurance for All," "New York Health Plus," "Public-Private Partnership," and "The Freedom Plan." The cost and coverage effects of each category are discussed in summary.

The report is accompanied by a much longer document containing the detailed analysis of the Urban Institute which underpins the discussion contained in the report. The longer document, which runs to 125 pages, is here.

Both reports as well as other documents and the transcripts of all of the public hearings leading up to the report can be found on the Partnership's website at partnership4coverage.ny.gov.
