To the Editor:
I am fortunate enough to have decent health insurance through my employer. However, this means that if I want to switch jobs, for a better salary or a job that better suits my career goals, I may have to go without health insurance for a risky period of time, or pay the exorbitant Cobra costs. I would also be more hesitant to work for a small company that may not provide health insurance. Wouldn’t we be served better if people could pursue their careers without having to worry about having employer health insurance coverage? This is why I support the New York Health Act.
