The Center for Disability Rights is thrilled by the announcement that Governor Cuomo has signed Assembly Bill 5175A which will require the state to notify disabled people with excess income that they can qualify for Medicaid by using a pooled trust.

This important legislation means that pooled trusts will no longer be New York State’s best-kept secret. Disabled people will now be aware that they don’t have to choose between paying their bills and getting healthcare. We appreciate the Governor for signing the bill. We are grateful to legislators Gottfried and Ortt for the hard work they put into passing it.
