Senate Health Committee Chair Gustavo Rivera and Assembly Health Committee Chair Richard Gottfried will hear feedback and recommendations from health care providers, patient advocates, health coverage providers, labor representatives, employers and other stakeholders about the New York Health Act and its specific provisions.

Cost remains a primary obstacle to accessing health care, and those who are able to access care are often left with significant debt as a result. The New York Health Act would replace traditional health insurance coverage and public health coverage programs with comprehensive single-payer health coverage, including long-term care, for all New Yorkers. The program would be publicly funded, including existing federal support for Medicaid and Medicare. New Yorkers would no longer have to pay premiums, deductibles, co-pays, out-of-network charges or have limited provider networks.
