Before the COVID pandemic, we were seeing patients needlessly suffering–unable to pay for medications, tests, and doctor visits, delaying treatment, and failing to address treatable illnesses. Now during this unprecedented public healthcare crisis, we are witnessing the consequences of the fragmented and unequal system of care: Black and immigrant communities are seeing the highest rates of death from COVID, millions of people are losing their employer-sponsored health plan just when they will need it most, and under-insurance continues to be a problem, especially for mental healthcare, dental care, and home care. And yet private insurance companies are posting record profits. We cannot remain quiet while the current health insurance system causes millions of New Yorkers to struggle with preventable illness and death.

We must build back betterWe urge you to support the New York Health Act and replace private insurance with comprehensive, universal healthcare for every New Yorker.
