The New York Health Act (S5474) is legislation that would provide comprehensive health coverage for every resident of New York Instead of having to worry about getting health insurance through your job, spouse, or buying it on your own, all New Yorkers would automatically have their healthcare covered by a public statewide fund, regardless of age, employment, immigration status or financial means. Everyone would have access to healthcare the way everyone has access to the fire department, libraries, and schools – public services provided without your ever having to worry about a bill.
New Yorkers are ready for a bold solution to the healthcare crisis. One that guarantees coverage for EVERY New Yorker and ends financial barriers to care.
It's time for New York Health.
