New York Health Act Lobby Tue April 4, 2017

Do you want to be part of health care reform history?

The New York Health Act—the state universal single-payer health care bill—passed the NYS Assembly in 2015 and 2016. Support has grown in the New York State Senate significantly—we only need 4 more Senators to have the majority of the Senate behind this common sense solution to our health care system.

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—regardless of immigration status—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.
  • Guaranteed coverage for reproductive health services.
  • Business would no longer worry about bankrupting health care costs, and the New York State economy would no longer have to support an antiquated, wasteful private health insurance.
Now is the time to add your voice. Join us in Albany on April 4th!

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!
