Another Voice: New York Health Law Would Improve Results and Save Money | Opinion

MORNING BUSINESS REPORT: Student loan is not worth it, help with internet account, large wind farm News

A new public administrative agency, needed to implement the New York Health Plan, would cause an estimated 2% increase in public sector employment. That translates to 150,000 new jobs with good pay, benefits, and union backing. A 2018 report from the Rand Corp. found that even conservative models of NYHA implementation showed massive benefits. Under this new system, 90% of New Yorkers would pay less in health care costs and the state would save $80 billion over 10 years. Public hospitals would benefit from a higher reimbursement rate, reducing the chance of closures.

Senate leadership refused to bring NYHA to a vote. This outcome was a blow to New Yorkers, of whom approximately 1 million are uninsured. A 2019 survey of New York adults found that 52% of respondents struggled with health care affordability the prior year. Burdens associated with cost pushed 45% of those same New Yorkers to avoid or delay seeking medical care. That means people not getting help when needed, and potentially developing more serious issues. It eliminates the out-of-pocket payments, like copays and premiums, that prevent many families from receiving care.
