There is a bill that sits in the New York State Legislature that could be a great boon to all of us. It’s called the New York Health Act. As a self-employed person with some serious health issues in my family, buying insurance on my own is a great burden. Right now, neither private insurance nor ACA are really affordable.
As a social worker in private practice - I see my patients struggling with high co-pays, sometimes 80 to 90 percent of the office visits, necessitating fewer visits than they really need, and it just gets worse year by year. Since I found out about the NY Health Act, I feel like hope is within reach.
