Senate and Assembly Health Committee Chairs Gustavo Rivera and Richard Gottfried will take testimony to examine the New York Health Act. This is part of a series of hearings on this topic to gather input from around the state.

Cost remains a primary obstacle to accessing healthcare whether an individual is insured, underinsured or uninsured and those that are able to access healthcare are often left with significant debt. 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, copays, out-of-network charges or have limited provider networks.
