"I Am Passionate About Healthcare"
"I am passionate about healthcare. I believe that every person should have healthcare. It is a human right. I don't want to live in a society where people are not able to take care of their health needs. Society actually saves money if people can get the care they need, before it turns into a medical emergency. If someone is diagnosed with a serious condition, I want them to be able to get the care they need.
I also believe the insurance and drug companies have too much power, where they raise prices on drugs and insurance policies making huge profits and the rest of us are struggling to pay for medicine and insurance.
On a personal note, I have some medical conditions that require medication and I have insurance through the ACA with a subsidy. I want and need to be able to afford health insurance."
Naomi - Queens Huddle
How many people would lose coverage if the ACA were repealed?
The Queens Huddle Supports the Passage of the New York Health Act.
The New York State Constitution states: "The Protection and promotion of the health of the inhabitants of the state are matters of public concern and provision therefore shall be made by the state and by such of its subdivisions and in such manner, and by such means as the legislation shall from time to time determine."
Senate Bill (S4840) Would Do the following:
Declare all residents of New York have the right to healthcare
Provide a universal health plan funded by broad-based revenue based ability to pay Encourage cooperative, collaborative and integrative arrangements among health care providers
