New York Health Act Forum
Apr 16 @ 6:10 pm – 6:10 pm

Are you tired of high monthly premiums, high deductibles, and arguing each bill with your private insurance company? Have you or someone you know had to delay seeing a doctor or declare bankruptcy because of health care costs? Do you just want to understand how a publicly funded, expanded and improved Medicare-for-All system would work?

Then please join us for an educational forum on the economics, politics, and prospects for the New York Health Act, legislation pending in the New York State legislature which would create a universal single payer health plan – New York Health – to provide comprehensive health coverage for all New Yorkers.
– Learn how we can cover health care costs for all residents of New York without copays or deductibles.
– Hear about what the New York Health Act will mean from the perspectives of public policy and health justice advocates, patients, physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals, business owners, employees, and taxpayers.
– Learn how the New York Health Act could benefit you and your community.
– Also hear about the experiences of Canadians with their own publicly funded Medicare for everyone system that has existed for over 50 years.
– Share your own stories about challenges or obstacles you’ve faced in our current healthcare system and learn how the New York Health Act could be the solution.
– Ask questions.

New York Health Act Forum
Monday, April 15th 7pm
Orchard Park Municipal Building – Courtroom
4295 S. Buffalo St, Orchard Park, NY 14127
(160 person seating capacity)

Healthcare costs continue to rise while too many of us remain uninsured or underinsured, or are trapped in restrictive & confusing networks, preventing us from accessing the care we need.
Navigating the private health insurance market is confusing and expensive. Even if you have insurance, getting them to cover healthcare expenses can be a tedious maze of referrals, payment denials, appeals, and surprise bills. Our system isn’t working. The US spends more on healthcare and receives worse health outcomes compared to other countries who provide universal coverage.

New York State has the chance to lead the nation in creating a system that guarantees healthcare for everyone. The New York Health Act would guarantee healthcare for every New York resident regardless of income, wealth, health, employment or other statuses. It is comprehensive healthcare, including dental, vision, hearing, mental health and more, and saves us money too!

NY Health Act/Medicare for All Forum
Apr 16 @ 6:10 pm – 6:10 pm

WHAT IS THE NY HEALTH ACT ( IE. MEDICARE FOR ALL ) AND WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO ME?

The NY Health Act calling for public-funded healthcare for all New Yorkers is progressing through the

legislature now. It’s already passed the Assembly and is likely to win Senate approval. If enacted, it

would significantly change the lives of all NY residents, so you may well ask; “What would this mean to

me? Would I lose my employer’s insurance? How would it affect my taxes and income?” If you own a

business, “How would it impact my costs and competitiveness?”

Get answers to these and any other questions about this important legislation at a public informational

meeting, April 15 th at 7:00 PM in the Orchard Park Municipal Building lower level meeting room, 4295 S.

Buffalo Road, Orchard Park 14127. A panel of experts will explain how the NY Health Act would affect

health insurance cost, healthcare quality, availability, and the NY economy.

Healthcare is a major issue so don’t’ miss this opportunity to learn what this will mean to you. High

turnout is expected, so please register. Refreshments will be available at this FREE public event.
