Erica, Flushing

My name is Erica Lee and I've worked as a mental health counselor in Flushing, NY. I am very frustrated with the current healthcare system. Private insurance companies do not provide adequate coverage with constant delays and strict limits on how much care clients should receive- from the number of office visits to how long each appointment should be. They keep lowering reimbursement rates, forcing my agency to stop taking most private insurances. The clinicians have little say over this process and we're left with telling our clients they need to pay out of pocket. It's despicable. We need NY Health so my clients won’t go without healthcare they need
