Federal trumps state if the law is "better".
Example: Federal law does not require the birthday rule for GI on Medicare. However some states have it. Its a "better" law for the insured.
In this case, NY is getting the Feds and Insurance companies to pay for pregos. Instead of the state paying for pregos. (Pregos ALWAYS get coverage, one way or another). Sounds like a brilliant plan to me. I always like it when I get someone else to pay for my laws....
