Healthcare Update Newsletter: Effects of Healthcare Reform Legislation

I know how confusing healthcare insurance issues can be, and in times like these, with new Federal legislation, these issues can get even more complicated. My office has received a great many calls from constituents seeking assistance in navigating issues of access to healthcare and in dealing with Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance. As New York State moves toward implementing Federal healthcare reform, there are many new questions about what changes to expect. This newsletter is an effort to address some of these questions.

Please see attached newsletter.

September 2010 Community Bulletin

Message from Liz . . .

Already post-Labor Day–wow!

In reviewing what summer 2010 will be remembered for, I am struck by the BP oil spill disaster in the Gulf, the hottest summer on record in New York City and a disturbing upsurge in Islamophobia throughout the US, including right here in New York City.

Early September this year brings the Jewish New Year (L’SHANA TOVA 5771 to those of you who are celebrating) and so too the end of Ramadan for the Muslim community, which is celebrated with a big feast, that happens to fall on September 11th this year. Jewish and Muslim holidays move dates every year due to solar changes.

Standing Up for Women's Reproductive Rights

Recently, I sent an open letter to President Obama expressing my concern over abortion restrictions to the high-risk insurance pools established through the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act.

When the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act (PPAHC) was passed, I felt that we, as a nation, were establishing the beginning of a caring, and needed, response to a serious abuse inherent to the health insurance delivery system. But, the recent announcement applicable to this Act by the Obama administration, prohibiting abortions excepting cases of rape, incest and life endangerment to the mother, carves out a legal medical procedure that has serious implications for a population that is already medically compromised.
