The NY Health Act (Gottfried/Rivera), will provide universal publicly funded single payer health care (expanded Medicare for all) to all NYS residents regardless of age, income, health or immigration status. No deductibles, no networks, no copays, no insurance companies. Just comprehensive inpatient, outpatient medical services, dental, vision, rehabilitation,  prescription drugs, laboratory tests, mental health services available to all!

The bill passed the NYS Assembly twice and is now within ONE VOTE of being able to pass in the Senate! Please join us in supporting this excellent and humane piece of legislation.
