states: "The protection and promotion of the health of  the  inhabitants
of  the state are matters of public concern and provision therefor shall
be made by the state and by such of its subdivisions and in such manner,

cost  of  health  care  and  coverage in recent years. This increase has
resulted in a large number of people without health coverage. Businesses
have also experienced extraordinary increases in  the  costs  of  health
care benefits for their employees. An unacceptable number of New Yorkers
have no health coverage, and many more are severely underinsured. Health
care  providers  are  also affected by inadequate health coverage in New
York state. A large portion of voluntary and  public  hospitals,  health
centers and other providers now experience substantial losses due to the
