Healthcare for every New Yorker
The New York Health Act will provide comprehensive, universal health coverage for every New Yorker. You and your healthcare providers will work to keep you healthy—New York Health pays the bill. We need to fight back against the congressional attacks on affordable healthcare nationally and organize in New York for a healthcare system that guarantees coverage for all of us.
We have never been so close to winning universal healthcare! The bill passed the NYS Assembly three years in a row, and nearly a majority of the State Senate is now in support. We need you to call your State Senator today and tell them to fight for the New York Health Act!
Why Take Action for the New York Health Act
The Campaign for New York Health is a coalition of organizations and individuals representing millions of New Yorkers committed to guaranteeing healthcare for the residents of our state. Our goal is to win improved Medicare for All in New York State.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) made history by expanding health insurance to thousands of New Yorkers for the first time. However, it left insurance companies in charge of our healthcare system. Also, even with the ACA, over 1,000,000 New York residents are still uninsured.
With the federal government again doing healthcare reform, moving more responsibility for healthcare to the states, it’s imperative that New York establish a better, truly universal system, which finally gets costs under control. Our state can set the standard for the country by implementing a just and equitable healthcare system — New York Health!
