    I am transgender. Before the pandemic I received my care at an LGBT clinic where it was cheaper not to have insurance than get charged for every biweekly shot.

    During the pandemic I began having some troubling symptoms but could not get to NYC to the clinic because of the pandemic. Blood tests cause me $565 and on top of that I found out because of a clerical error my Medicaid only covers ER visits. Still havent seen a specialist as a result.

    Affordable, accessible, culturally competent, and comprehensive healthcare is crucial for the immediate and long-term pandemic recovery of our communities. Every New Yorker should be free from the burden of medical costs.

    The New York Health Act [A6058/S5474] will guarantee comprehensive, universal healthcare coverage — including long-term care, mental healthcare, and dental care — for each and every resident of New York. You and your healthcare providers will work to keep you healthy. New York Health pays the bill. And health insurance coverage will no longer be tied to our jobs. 

    Thanks to the grassroots movement across the state, the New York Health Act has majority support in both state Assembly and the state Senate. Public support has never been higher. For-profit private insurance companies are spending millions of lobbying dollars to kill universal healthcare legislation at the state and national level. They are making record profits off the suffering during a global pandemic. They have the money, but we have the people.

    Together, we are building a powerful grassroots movement to win guaranteed, universal healthcare.
