NEW YORK – Attorney General Barbara D. Underwood announced today that the Trump administration has ordered the restoration of $574 million for three-quarters of the year – or more than $750 million on an annualized basis – in critical federal funding for New York's Essential Plan, following the Attorney General's lawsuit earlier this year. Attorney General Underwood released the following statement:

"Earlier this year, we filed suit to block the Trump administration from cutting off vital health care funding for New York's Essential Plan – which serves hundreds of thousands of low-income New Yorkers.

"Following our suit, the Trump administration has now ordered $574 million restored – or more than $750 million on an annualized basis.

"We are evaluating the recent administrative order, and will continue to do what is necessary to protect New Yorkers' health care."
