GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES SERIES OF EXPERT PANELS ON THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE IN NEW YORK UNDER THE WASHINGTON HEALTH CARE PLANS

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a series of expert panels and community roundtables about how the Washington health care plans could affect health care in New York State. The panels, which will be held across the state in late June, will feature Cuomo administration officials and experts and will encourage New Yorkers to understand what is at stake and how to best protect their families from upcoming changes to our health care system. Read the Governor’s statement on the Senate health care bill here. “With the Senate introducing their ultra-conservative and devastating health care bill today, we want to make sure people know the facts from experts and community members about how exactly this legislation will affect the future of health care in New York,” Governor Cuomo said. “These plans will strip coverage from millions of New Yorkers and devastate our health care system, and while Congress has demonstrated an appalling lack of transparency and accountability to Americans, we are stepping up to provide New Yorkers with the facts about their health and lives.” According to the latest estimates, the House American Health Care Act, if enacted, would put 2.7 million New Yorkers at risk of losing their health insurance and would include $7 billion in cuts from New York’s health care system over the next four years.
