Guam Delegate Michael San San Nicolas has joined fellow members of Congress hosting Compact migrants to extend Medicaid eligibility to Compact migrants.

The Covering Our FAS Allies (COFA) Act will reinstate Medicaid eligibility to FAS migrants, something that has not been afforded since 1996.

Without Medicaid eligibility, San Nicolas said Compact migrants unable to pay or uninsured are left to rely on the Government of Guam Medically Indigent Program (MIP) which has been severely underfunded for many years.
