New York is one of a few states with a safety net system in place to provide coverage for immigrants who are here legally and those who are not. The Prenatal Care Assistance Program or PCAP provides coverage for all pregnant women regardless of their status. The State Children's Health Insurance Program does the same for kids. Through a complicated mix of grants, contracts and reimbursement, the MIC women's clinic never turns anyone away, still providing care to those who can't afford or qualify for coverage.
And we're paying for it! Why do we actively encourage procreation by providing freebies to people here illegally? Oh, that's right...tweeding.
