Dear Governor Hochul, State Senators and Assembly Members,
We have a problem with healthcare. It is unacceptable that every day over one million New Yorkers are uninsured. Yet even those of us with private insurance go without or dangerously delay needed care because of the skyrocketing cost of premiums, deductibles, and ever-increasing copays.
But there is a solution to this crisis: the New York Health Act.
The New York Health Act will implement truly universal health coverage in NY and eliminate financial barriers to care, while allowing people to go to the doctor and hospital of their choice. Healthcare will be based on need -- not tied to employment, immigration, income, or health status. Studies show it will cost less than the status quo, saving money for individuals, businesses, and the state.
The Assembly passed this bill four years in a row, and a majority of the newly elected State Senate is on record in support. Now that we have a path to victory, we need you make it a reality.
Please add your name to show our elected officials New Yorkers want universal health care - we need your support!
