The Campaign for New York Health is a coalition of organizations, unions, businesses and individuals committed to guaranteeing healthcare for the residents of our state (and those that work in our state but live elsewhere!). 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, the ACA still left private insurance companies in charge of our healthcare system. Meanwhile, the number of uninsured is growing because people are losing their health insurance tied to their jobs, resulting in more than one million New Yorkers having no insurance whatsoever in the middle of a pandemic.
As a just recovery to the pandemic, it’s imperative that New York establish a truly universal healthcare system that controls the outrageous costs and dismantles the discriminatory and fragmented for-profit structure. Our state can set the standard for the country by implementing a just and equitable healthcare system — New York Health!
