  • Join the movement for healthcare for all

    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.

    Sign your name below to join our movement of thousands of New Yorkers who want a healthcare system that works for everyone.

    Dear Governor & NY State Senate and Assembly Leadership, 

    We have a problem with health equity. It is unacceptable that every day more than one million New Yorkers are uninsured. And that millions more New Yorkers are underinsured — people who have private insurance but still go without or dangerously delay needed care because of the skyrocketing cost of premiums, deductibles, ever-increasing copays and restrictive doctor networks. It is unacceptable that America spends twice as much as our international counterparts, yet have many of the worst health outcomes.

    But there is a solution to this crisis: the New York Health Act [A6058/S5474].

    The New York Health Act will provide comprehensive, universal healthcare coverage — including long-term care, mental healthcare, and dental care — for each and every resident of New York. The NY Health Act also eliminates financial barriers to care such as deductibles, copays and monthly premiums, while allowing people to go to the doctor and hospital of their choice. Healthcare will be based on need — not tied to employment, immigration, income, or health status. Studies show it will cost less than the current system, saving money for individuals, businesses, and New York State.

    For the first time ever, a majority of legislators in the NY Assembly and Senate both support the bill. The NY Health Act is morally just, fiscally responsible, and politically popular. We can't have a just recovery to this pandemic without the NY Health Act. We can't have racial, economic and health justice without affordable, comprehensive, universal healthcare. Now that we have a path to victory, we need you make it a reality! 

    Endorsed by 500+ small business and 700+ organizations including the New York State Nurses Association, 1199SEIU - the largest healthcare union in the nation, and the Working Families Party.

    Please add your name to show our elected officials New Yorkers want universal health care
