Press Release

Del. Mike San Nicolas has co-sponsored a bill seeking to reinstate, after about 23 years, Medicaid eligibility to Freely Associated States migrants.

Rep. Tony Cárdenas of California, along with San Nicolas and other representatives from districts hosting FAS migrants, introduced the bipartisan measure called the Covering Our FAS Allies, or COFA, Act.

If the bill becomes law, it will restore Medicaid eligibility for citizens of Palau, the Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia.
