The pandemic is proving why we must create a system that guarantees care for everybody — regardless race, age, or employment status.
The New York Health Act [A6058/S5474] will provide 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 passed the Assembly four years in a row, achieved historic majority support of legislators in both the NYS Senate and Assembly in 2021, and public support has never been higher. We face an uphill battle against well-funded corporate opposition. 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, our grassroots organizing is more powerful than any amount of political bribery, and we're going to prove it!
