Last year the New York Health Act (A5062/S3525) – the state universal single-payer health care bill – passed the NYS Assembly in a historic vote with huge majority support. The bill is coming to vote again this year, and we need you to make sure it passes again with even more votes to show momentum is on our side. Join the rally and lobby day in Albany!
If passed, New York would lead the nation by creating the largest statewide universal single-payer health care system (like Medicare, but better!) in the country.
- Every New Yorker would receive quality health care and be able to choose their medical provider.
- No more bankruptcies due to medical debt.
- No more discrimination due to the kind of insurance you have.
- No more delays and denials from insurance companies.
Now is the time to add your voice. Join us in Albany on May 24th!
We need YOU to pass the bill in the State Assembly again this session and win more support in the Senate. Join us because healthcare is a human right!
