    I have worked all my life and am now retired and have to limit necessary health care consultations because of surprise additions and specialist fees. Plus tests that specialists run add up extras. So I’ve just canceled two appointments because the $7000 received for the specialist services doesn’t adequately cover the four visits I’ve made. My primary care doctor wants me to go to specialists because rightfully he wants to make sure I’m getting adequate care. But the small co-pays and associated tests that aren’t covered add up to.hundreds of dollars. This is ridiculous.

    Also beware of health care in our prison system. I am suffering from conditions right now that were deliberately created and/or ignored because I am, let’s say, a democratic socialist and encountered political forces that would like to rid the world of dissenting voices. I am not being paranoid. I would be willing to share my identity and story regarding my.situation. THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE. Ultimate victory would be letting others know the truth about our broken, destructive systems and achieving superlative care for all.


    I hope you will listen.

    In the face of the ongoing public health crisis, we must keep organizing for the healthcare we need.

    A central piece of the Campaign for NY Health strategy to win healthcare for all is uplifting the voices and leadership of New Yorkers who have been hurt by the existing pay-or-die healthcare system. Please share your healthcare story, and we will followup with you about ways to be more involved in the fight for guaranteed universal healthcare.

    • Has there been a time when you or a loved one needed healthcare but weren’t able to get it? Why? What happened? 
    • Are you a healthcare worker who has seen patients delay care due to cost or insurance barriers?
