HEALTH CARE EQUITY

Why We're Fighting

 

Health care is a human right. That means every New Yorker should be able to get the care they need–seeing a doctor, filling prescriptions, going to the hospital–without the fear of financial ruin. Unfortunately, powerful corporations that are more concerned about profit than people’s well-being rig the system to benefit themselves and leave regular people behind. These corporations are getting rich on the backs of patients while taking public money intended to help pay for care. 

We envision a world where every New Yorker has the quality health care they need and the financial stability they deserve. It’s time to end medical debt and pass coverage for all to put us on a path to healthy, strong communities where every single person can thrive.

Why We're Fighting

 

We will shrink the racial divide in health care, expand access, and stop corporations from getting rich on the backs of patients by:

  • Passing Hospital Financial Assistance Access to force hospitals to make financial assistance funding accessible to patients and raising the threshold for who qualifies
  • Passing Coverage For All to ensure all New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status, are eligible for health care coverage
