CACF joins NYC DOHMH Health Care Open Enrollment Day of Action

January 5th, 2019

The New York State Health Open Enrollment period ends on January 31st, 2019. To encourage enrollment, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH), is launching a Day of Action for January 17th 2019 and CACF, Coalition for Asian American Children and Families, is joining this effort to increase enrollment, particularly in the Asian Pacific American (APA) community. With the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) still in effect alongside Medicaid expansion, NYC is seeking to enroll over 50,000 New Yorkers in low or no-cost health care.

CACF is working with its member organizations and Patient Navigators by providing additional outreach tools and resources to grow enrollment within the APA community. New York’s APA community comprises of 15% of New York’s population (1.3 million people) and over 40% of APAs qualify for and receive Medicaid. However, almost 15% of the NYC APAs remain uninsured.

CACF’s Patient Navigators have shared how difficult it is to enroll members of the APA community. Many APAs experience language barriers as almost 45% of New York’s APAs speak little to no English and the linguistic needs are highly varied with well over 20 languages such as Urdu, Tagalog, Taishanese, Hindi and Bengali.

Additionally, growing but unfounded fears regarding Public Charge have negatively impacted enrollment. CACF denounces Public Charge, where the receipt of public cash or assistance may deny a person’s admission to the United States or lawful permanent residence status. CACF reminds all that Public Charge has not taken into effect and does not legally impact one’s immigration status. These unwarranted fears should be ignored and all New Yorkers should apply for Health Care coverage.

“We recommend all New Yorkers continue to seek the help you need to protect you and your family’s health and well-being. Remember, you are not alone. CACF and thousands of other organizations across the country are defending the Affordable Care Act. Please sign up for Health Care before January 31st, and encourage others to do so as well.
-Vanessa Leung and Anita Gundanna, CACF Co-Executive Directors

With roughly two weeks remaining in this Open Enrollment period, CACF and its Patient Navigators are working hard to enroll New Yorkers in Health Care.
